Minimising hazards: Safety glasses

It is important that employers identify hazards posed in the work environment and minimise the risks to employees.

Listening to the workforce is an essential element of identifying hazards, their feedback enables problems on site to be identified quicker.

Below is an example of how a site improved the safety of the work environment:

  • Site trial took place to replace ordinary safety glasses with ‘lenses’ made from perforated stainless steel;
  • This came about due to operative feedback that their ordinary lenses were misting up;
  • The Mesh-Specs (Model SM-837) contain lenses that are manufactured from stainless steel mesh, eliminating the issue of  fog/misting up and are designed to be comfortable to wear for long periods.
