Eye injuries at the workplace are more common than the average person thinks. According to AAO (American Academy of Ophthalmology), More than 40 percent of eye injuries occur at industrial jobs. This should be both alarming to employees & companies alike as both bear damages one way or the other. According to BLS (Bureau of labor statistics), companies bear $300 million dollars in medical costs, reduced productivity caused by injured employees.
Thus, protecting your eyes on your jobs cannot be overstressed enough. Experts unanimously agree that eye injuries can be reduced by 90% by wearing eye protection gear. In the same vein, the OHSA recommends that employees should not only be provided with safety gear for face & eyes, but the very equipment should also be relevant enough to protect against given workplace hazards. This article elaborates on how 3M Lexa Dust GoggleGear is the perfect solution where usual safety glasses cannot be a suitable fit.
Common causes of eye injuries at work
Industrial jobs often involve lots of cutting, grinding, sawing, melting, etc. which can give rise to a number of threats to the eye. Hazards like flying projectiles, debris, shards, splinters, bits of metal or splashes of toxic chemicals are a few to name here. They can induce blunt trauma or lacerations after coming in contact with the eye thereby resulting in devastating eye injuries such as temporary or permanent vision loss. Toxic chemicals can cause burns to the eye. Hence, if the PPE used does not provide the required level of safety assurance or discomfort, users may disregard it all together which could increase the chances of sustaining eye injuries. Hence, it is always recommended for safety program managers to thoroughly assess their work environments to choose the right kind of PPE.
How Goggles can help?
3M Lexa Dust GoggleGear is the go-to option for preventing hazards which otherwise cannot be staved off by wearing normal protective eyeglasses. Its wide aspheric lens allows for a substantial surface area of protection. It gives the user a much more natural appearance. The wide, wraparound design offers greater peripheral vision as well which is crucial for most labor-intensive jobs. The foam flange at the brow area of the goggles acts as a solid bulwark against trickles of sweat which otherwise may interfere with your vision while performing any task. It also keeps away instances of dust or fine particles away from entering & harming your eyes. All of 3M’s safety equipment eyewear is ANSI Z787.1 compliant which offers shatter proof protection against high volume & velocity impacts. This is due to the polycarbonate lens used in glasses. The deceptively lean thermoplastic material also ensures 99% absorption of UV A & B types of rays. The vented channels allow sufficient air flow which eliminates any chance of beclouded lenses. This safety eyewear is apt for a number of manufacturing locations. By & large, you can never go wrong by choosing 3M’s safety equipment.
