Safety & Healthy Eyes

Healthy vision is essential for a productive and cost-effective workplace. It is important for both employers and employees to recognize the importance between healthy vision and workplace performance.

Tips For Employers

- Encourage employees to schedule an eye exam
- Most vision care plans recommend a comprehensive vision care exam on a yearly basis
- Establish a 100% mandatory program requiring eye protection
- Plan for emergencies - establish first-aid procedures for eye injuries
- Conduct ongoing education programs about eye safety
- Consider eyewear with ultra-violet protection for workers who spend extended periods of time outdoors - such as drivers, construction workers and others
- An emergency trend among innovative employers is to advocate new Industrial Safety Eyewear on a yearly basis

Tips For Employees

When working around machinery
- Wear protective eyewear that meets the approval of the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), which will clearly be marked ANSI Z87.2+
- Routinely inspect work areas, access routes and equipment

When working on a computer
- Blink more often to refocus your eyes
- Every 20 minutes take a 20 second break to look at something at least 20 feet away
- Dim overhead lights directly above the computer
- If you wear glasses, talk to your eye care provider about anti-reflective lenses, which reduce glare, eye strain and fatigue
- Sit away from the monitor and maintain good posture while sitting in your chair
