The OHSA makes it mandatory for companies to provide the right kind of equipment at the workplace. It should suffice to protect employee’s face & eyes against prevailing hazards. Although buying the right kind of PPE is good, further analysis pertaining to the vision correction problems of employees needs to be carried out. Otherwise, ignorance can lead to problems. For instance, you receive a new pair of protective eyeglasses from your safety supervisor. Once you start working though, a problem arises. You find it difficult to read fine prints which are contained in job manuals or any other instruction booklet which is auxiliary literature. Furthermore, you can’t focus on reading small text etched on machinery or any other piece of hardware such as tools, nuts or bolts which form necessary paraphernalia in the performance of your job.
Having Bi-focal lenses helps
Switching from your regular safety eyewear to prescription ones can be very perilous at industrial jobs where safety hazards such as flying projectiles; splashes of toxic chemicals; debris or fine sediments exist. They can induce great damage to the naked eye. Furthermore, having to change from protective eyeglasses to RX glasses is such a nuisance thereby causing discomfort & may even force some workers to disregard wearing PPE (personal protective equipment) at work.
For this very purpose, 3M BX Readers provide you with bifocal lenses for seamless job performance & comfort at the workplace. They are also called occupational bifocal readers due to the dual lenses that they possess. They consist of a reader section both at the top & bottom of the lenses. The advantage of having top bifocals on the very frames allows for a much comfortable view by reducing the range of motion of the neck while reading. This greatly allays the stress of constant movement of the neck while reading. The top to bottom design allows for a greater area for reading purposes as many people prefer greater vertical area as opposed to horizontal view.
The very frame combines eye safety along with the reading function by offering 1.5+ diopters which you can use to magnify according to your vision correction needs. This dispels away the inconvenience of carrying a separate eyeglass for reading purposes.

The polycarbonate material used in lenses allows for 100 % absorption of UV rays. This helps when you are required to work out in the sun. Glare can cause long term ye ailments such as cataracts & macular degeneration which can result in blindness. Plus, the ANSI Z787.1 certification ensures shatterproof protection of polycarbonate lens against high volume impacts during accidents.
