Wearing OTG (Over the glass) safety eyewear can be a good idea. It helps if you prefer wearing contact lenses for your vision correction or in lieu of glasses who have some gaps on the side of their lenses. 3M Frameless Protective Eyewear, on the other hand, provides comprehensive protection for your eyes and also offer a wider peripheral vision which is crucial on your job. According to BLS (Bureau of labor statistics), 40% of workers who sustained eye injuries on an annual basis were wearing some sort of eyewear. Thus, the need for adequate & appropriate protection cannot be overstressed. This article explains how 3M Light Vision OTG eyewear is a suitable PPE against varying hazards at the workplace.
The need for OTG eyewear
Overlay eyewear provides effective protection where splashes of hazardous liquid, dust, debris or any other flying projectiles are present. They offer all-round protection due to a close-fit, greater surface area of protection around your eyes. This is something that some safety eyewear lack due to their size. Whereas wearing goggles over contacts can be somewhat preferable for people as they don’t want to take off their lenses. This fulfills the criteria for protection as prescribed by the OHSA as well as vision correction to the wearer.
Wearing OTG protection serves another advantage by not getting outdated by means of a prescription. The same cannot be said about RX Safety Glasses who may require an overall update if the prescription of the user changes over time. Furthermore, a single pair of goggles can be used by many people who have different prescription numbers for their vision. They can choose to wear them over their original RX glasses.
There are certain types of goggles. Some are perforated at the top or sides for the purpose of ventilation. This, in turn, reduces the chances of beclouded lenses. Conversely, non-vented goggles provide a fantastic level of safety against toxic liquids, fine sediments or particles due to being completely sealed from all sides. However, there arises a good chance that they might get fogged. Hence, one should always buy them with an anti-fog coating applied on the lenses.
Why choose 3M?
3M Light Vision OTG proves an excellent choice for people requiring fully sealed frameless eyewear with anti-fogging lenses. 3M’s trademark Scotch Guard technology for anti-fogging prevents the process of condensation to allow for a clear, unobstructed view for prolonged hours of work in extreme temperatures of the work environment. The adjustable temple lengths can be tweaked to be worn on a variety of face shapes. They also come with integrated, adjustable LED lights to use while you are working under dim lighting conditions which are common in mining, etc. Thereby dispelling the nuisance of holding a spare flashlight. The polycarbonate material used in lenses ensures no fragmentation when a flying object strikes the lens’ surface. All in all, 3M stands as the perfect choice for all industrial vocations.
