One of the easiest ways to ensure the health and safety of your employee’s vision and be a responsible employer is by practicing eye safety in the workplace. Making sure your employees are wearing Personal Protective Equipment, such as safety eyewear from SafeVision, is essential to this practice. Even though you provide safety eyewear, it is still necessary to have an eye safety audit in place to help identify hazards your employees might face in the workplace. It also ensures they are following all safety regulations. We are going to assist you in creating a basic eye safety audit for your workplace.
Look At Your Current Audit
If your company already has an eye safety audit, make sure to review it for accuracy and compliance with updated safety rules. If your audit is outdated and lacking, review the updated rules and guidelines from regulators like OSHA and apply them to your own.
Identify Workplace Hazards
As you look around your workplace, what hazards can you identify? There are plenty that exists, both indoors and outdoors, in the forms of splashes, dust, projectiles, and foreign objects. By identifying and exposing potential hazards in the workplace, you can minimize the risk to your employees.
Select High-Quality Prescription Safety Eyewear
An essential part of keeping your employees safe is ensuring they wear ANSI-certified and OSHA-compliant prescription safety eyewear. When choosing a provider, think about us at SafeVision. The brands we sell are not “one-size-fits-all,” and there are options for every occupation, head shape, or specific need. We know that each employee is different and requires frames fit to protect their eyes from the hazards they face. SafeVision offers the largest exclusive frame selection with over 65 styles of branded prescription safety eyewear.
Enforce Policies & Educate Employees
Providing your employees with safety eyewear is only the beginning. It is essential to educate and encourage your employees daily to wear their eyewear and ensure your company enforces its protection policies. Take time to meet with employees and discuss the benefits of eye safety. Also, make sure that all management follows these safety rules as well. They set the example for all, which in turn makes employees more likely to follow suit.
