Eye injuries at workplace are a reality. According to Bureau of Labor Statistics, an alarming 3000 eye injuries occur each day at industrial jobs. Furthermore, 40 percent of these injuries are as a result of wearing the wrong kind of safety eyewear by employees. The OHSA makes it incumbent upon companies to provide the right kind of protection for eyes that offers relevant eye protection against prevailing hazards. This includes a preliminary assessment of what is exactly required to prevent any harm to workers’ eyes. For instance, people with vision correction problems have two options, either to buy a separate RX safety eyewear or buy over-the-glasses protective gear. Both options have their own pros & cons. However, we will discuss the latter option. This article dilates on how 3M OX is the feasible choice for people who wish to stick with their own RX eyewear.
3M OX is the perfect choice for people who choose to wear their own RX eyewear at work. This might be due to not wanting a separate protective gear for eyes due to cost. Furthermore, there are some disadvantages associated with buying safety eyewear with RX option. First, once the prescription requirements of any employee changes, the whole eyewear needs to be updated. This becomes a nuisance for both employees & the company. Second, RX protective eyeglasses do not fulfill one size fits all criteria as vision correction requirements differ among every other employee. Thus, wearing over the glass protection proves to be advantageous by virtue of the aforementioned arguments. They can be worn over your regular RX eyewear, which sounds more comfortable to users than the idea of buying a whole new glasses for safety purposes.
Over-the-glasses eyewear can offer comprehensive protection due to its greater surface area as opposed to normal industrial eyewear. One of their prominent features is side shields. Protecting your eyes at the sides is something that much industrial eyewear forego. Whenever an accident occurs, it is our instinct to turn our face away from the source at that moment to protect our eyes. This leaves the sides of our eyes vulnerable to a multitude of hazards such as foreign projectiles, splashes of liquid, dust, fine particles or shards/splinters. They can lead to permanent loss of vision after striking the surface of your eyes. The very frameless over-the-glass Protective Eyewear contain ANSI Z787.1 certified side shields which protect your eyes at the peripheral areas thus allowing for a stress-free performance on your job.
The adjustable temples of 3M OX allow them to achieve a comfortable fit over the majority of personal RX eyewear. 3M’s proprietary DX Anti-Fog coating allows for an unobstructed vision for prolonged hours of work. thereby eliminating the nuisance of taking off and then wiping clean the fog off the surface of lenses. By & large, 3M offers the most versatile collection on PPE for eye safety that provides the best value for your money.
