Thousands of people are yearly blinded from work-related eye injuries that could have been prevented with the proper selection and use of eye protection. Eye injuries alone cost more than $300 million per year in lost production time, medical expenses, and worker compensation. Eye and face protection is addressed in specific standards for the general industry, shipyard employment, long shoring, and the construction industry.
Safety glasses are necessary, and almost required when working in a hazardous environment where your eyes are at risk for injury. Eye injuries are caused by flying objects, flying particles, heat, sparks, splashes from molten materials, acid splash, chemical burns, abrasive blasting materials, stray lights, and optical radiations. Safety glasses come with different lenses and frames.
Depending on the industry you work in or the materials you handle will determine the appropriate safety glasses for you. Safety glasses have plastic polycarbonate lenses. These lenses are stronger on the safety glasses and tend to be more impact resistant. They can either come in prescription or non-prescription forms. Safety frames are stronger than street-wear frames and are often heat resistant. They are also designed to prevent lenses from being pushed into the eyes.
These signs are available in the classic OSHA format as well as in the ANSI spec. You can choose from any format. These signs become encapsulated under high temperature and pressure inside 50 mils of rigid PVC. They are also resistant to chemicals, weather, and physical abuse and tampering. Many of these safety signs are enhanced with OSHA/ANSI symbols. They can be delivered with either brass eyelets or adhesive mounted. Potential buyers can inquire for prices of semi custom signs and for signs over a quantity of 50.
