What good is safety eye wear if your people won’t wear it?
The role of comfort in eye protection cannot be underestimated. Recent research studies have shown comfortable and fashionable safety eyewear drive higher compliance.
Dr. Tavel is committed to having just that, fashionable safety eyewear that is not only comfortable, but OSHA and ANSI Z87.1 compliant.
Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is more important than ever. According to a survey done by the Bureau of Labor Statistics(BLS), 94 percent of workers eye injuries resulted from objects or chemicals going around or under the PPE. This is part of the reason Dr. Tavel offers great “wrap around” styles from OnGuard, and Hilco at affordable prices. We also offer permanent and semi-permanent side shields.
An on the job eye injury can cause lasting vision damage, potentially disabling a worker for life. Even “minor” eye injuries can cause long term vision problems and suffering.
However, an estimated 90 percent of eye injuries can be prevented through the use of proper protective eyewear, according to OSHA. With a statistic as compelling as this, it makes both common and economic sense to do everything possible to make sure workers have the right PPE to protect their eyes on the job. With such a wide array of comfortable and stylish products on the market today, there is really no excuse for workers not to wear protective eyewear.
For employees, a customized employer-funded plan covers some of the (potentially) high costs of routine eye care. Offering employees these benefits sends a message that you care about their safety and well-being. Offering this extra perk differentiates your organization from run-of-the-mill companies that do not invest in safety, and it boosts staff recruitment and retention.
