Blindingly Obvious

More than 2,000 people each year in the UK suffer eye injuries in the workplace, with 10%-20% of those injured experiencing temporary or permanent vision loss. The correct eye protection could lessen the severity or even prevent 90% of eye injury accidents. With one in three employees needing prescription safety eyewear, increasing to one in two with an aging workforce, it is critical that the correct safety eyewear is specified.

However, a survey conducted by Arco found six in 11 companies were providing inadequate prescription safety eyewear to their employees, despite conducting risk assessments and believing they had issued the correct specification for the hazards in their environment. Arco identified that flaws in the procurement process were at fault.
