Thinking of wearing your regular prescription glasses for work? Think again. Eye safety has often been taken nonchalantly by people working in industrial jobs. According to BLS (Bureau of labor statistics), almost three thousand eye injuries occur every day in industrial jobs. Furthermore, 40% of workers – who sustained eye injuries – were wearing some sort of eye protection. This points to the need for wearing protective gear which suffices to the various compliance standards set by non-profit bodies such as ANSI. This article explains how 3M OCC 304 protects you from workplace hazards by offering a variety of safety attributes.
The glasses consist of a modified oval shape which is a popular one among managers and staff who wish to maintain a sophisticated look without compromising on the safety of their eyes. The gender-neutral shape is perfectly wearable for both men & women in industrial jobs. You can wear them with your regular formal outfit at work. The glasses consist of a sleek, sharp design which you can sport while dealing with top hierarchy executives as well as when supervising operational workers.
Polycarbonate lenses help greatly in complying with ANSI Z898.1 standard. The very thermoplastic compound is ten times stronger than regular plastic or glass. This helps attain the required level of safety assurance which stipulates that the lens may not shatter against high impact hazards such as flying projectiles, debris or any other blunt trauma inducing an accident.
The frames are made up of titanium material which is strong enough to prevent any disfigurations or bending out of shape with usage. The Anti-scratch coating on lenses increases the shelf life of the glasses thereby reducing the replacement cost for users. Spring hinges at the temples allow for a greater range of motion & help your eyewear last longer.
The integrated side shields provide more comprehensive protection from any blunt trauma inducing hazards such as foreign bodies or splashes of toxic liquid from the sides of your eyes. When an accident occurs, we tend to turn our face away from the source of danger in an instinctive manner, which exposes the sides of our eyes to the danger at hand. Side shields help in staving off such threats. The additional brow guard also helps to prevent the sweat trickling down into your eyes from the eyebrows and acting as a bulwark against dust or debris entering from the top of your glasses.
Although prescription glasses can be worn under Safety Goggles, problems may still arise. Amidst hot & humid conditions, goggles cannot be worn for longer hours as opposed to protective eyeglasses with prescription lenses. Safety eyewear offers you the best of both worlds by integrating RX option as well along with providing the required level of safety assurance as per ANSI Z787.1 standard. Due to its lightweight nature, polycarbonate lenses also help you add up more prescription index in lenses in Prescription Safety Glasses without worrying about its weight.
