Glare can cause discomfort to eyes in our everyday routine. This is primarily due to the UV (Ultra Violet) rays contained in sunlight. Although we can’t visibly sense UV rays, their harms do manifest themselves in various forms of eye ailments. You may think sunglasses suffice as they provide much of the needed protection against UV. However, the same cannot be said for industrial workers who are exposed to an array of workplace hazards such as flying projectiles, debris, splinters or splashes of liquid. Hence, protecting your eyes at work is equally important as preventing them from the exposure to UV rays.
3M Safety Glasses are the perfect example of eyewear which gives you the best of both worlds by providing an aesthetic design as well as offering you the required level of safety assurance as prescribed by OHSA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) & ANSI (American National Standards Institute). The aforementioned organizations serve as a third party approver of the level of quality pertaining to durability & safety offered by PPE (personal protective equipment) manufacturers. In the same vein, the following discussion is related to how 3M Moon Dawg is an excellent choice for both UV protection & durability on your job.
What makes UV Rays harmful?
UV rays are made up of shorter wavelengths which are able to permeate through the ozone layer towards our earth’s atmosphere. These low energy rays are A & B type of UV rays. They tend to penetrate the human body which can be harmful as excessive radiation is always bad for us. Prolonged exposure to UV B type of rays causes sunburn & can lead to skin cancer. Whereas UV A type can cause long term eye ailments such as Cataracts & macular degeneration. The former causes clouding of the lens which can lead to loss of vision. The latter damages the central area at the back of our eye which is crucial for forming sharp images in our brain.
As mentioned, sunglasses do not prove sufficient in protecting your eyes at the workplace. Safety eyewear needs to be ANSI Z787.1 certified in order to comply with the requirements set by OHSA. The very standard pertains to the shatterproof protection offered by the lens of industrial eyewear.
Why choose 3M?
3M Moon Dawgs an apt mention here as they come with polycarbonate lenses which provides you the required safety assurance against high impact accidents as well as 100% absorption of both UVA & B types of rays. Furthermore, it can also be integrated with RX lenses in case anyone requires vision correction. Polycarbonate is extremely light in nature, which means you can pack up more prescription number without worrying about the weight of your protective eyeglasses. The rectangular shape with wide temples gives an attractive visual appeal to your overall appearance. By & large 3M is the perfect choice which offers the most versatile amount of protective features in their safety products.
