Who pays for prescription safety glasses?

Employers must provide proper eye protection and ensure that employees use it. However, this does not mean that the employer needs to purchase prescription safety goggles. If you have a job that requires protective eyewear, you are responsible for providing your own prescription glasses.

Can prescription glasses be worn as a substitute for safety glasses in the lab if they are ANSI Z87-approved?

Standard prescription glasses are not impact-resistant and are not suitable alternatives to safety glasses. "Fit testing" is needed to ensure the protective eyewear fits appropriately. Be sure all safety eyewear is marked "ANSI Z87."

Why do people wear prescription safety glasses?

Prescription safety glasses are specially designed to protect the eyes while working in construction, metalwork or any other industry which poses a regular threat to the eyes.

How do I know if my prescription glasses are safety glasses?

The first marking you'll likely see on your eyewear is “Z87” or “Z87+”. This is the ANSI standard for impact which helps ensure safety eyewear provides workers with the needed protection from impact hazards. For safety eyewear to pass the basic Z87 standard, it must pass the ball drop test.

Are prescription and safety eyewear the same?

Generally, prescription glasses and safety glasses aren't the same things, which is why prescription safety glasses are necessary. The main difference comes from the types of materials used to make lenses. Prescription eyewear corrects vision, while safety glasses resist or protect against various hazards.

Can prescription safety glasses be polarized?

While prescription safety glasses can be coated for polarized lenses, we do not recommend them. LCD screens, which are commonly used in work environments where safety is important, can be difficult to read with polarized lenses. The coating on polarized lenses and LCD screens works against each other, making the screen appear very dark.

How long do prescription safety glasses last?

Regular safety glasses shouldn't be worn for more than 3 years at the absolute maximum. Most safety glasses won't even make it that far, but expensive types such as prescription specs, may get to 3 years and they should then be replaced.
