Only One Pair: Protect Workers’ Eyes on the Job

eyesafety

As an employer, you need to promote and enforce the use of eye protection when it is necessary. Educate your workers about the importance of eye protection so they will automatically reach for it before they put their eye health at risk.

Safety glasses provide good protection. They provide even better protection if they properly fit and cared for.

CCOHS (Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety) offers these suggestions regarding the fit and care of your safety glasses.

  • Ensure safety glasses fit properly and are individually assigned and fitted.
  • Wear safety glasses so temples fit comfortably over the ears. The frame should be as close to the face as possible and adequately supported by the bridge of the nose.
  • Clean safety glasses daily and avoid activities that can scratch lenses.
  • Store safety glasses in a clean, dry place to protect them from damage. Keep them in a case when they’re not being worn.
  • Replace safety glasses if they are scratched, pitted, broken, bent or ill-fitting.
  • Replace damaged parts with identical parts from the original manufacturer.
