Using protective eyewear can prevent 90% of all eye injuries.

Introducing Arbill’s EasyRx Prescription Eyewear Program, the ultimate solution to all your company’s eyewear needs. Our program is designed to provide customized prescription eyewear that fits your budget while prioritizing safety and satisfaction.

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, about 20,000 eye injuries occur in the workplace each year. Injuries on the job often require one or more missed workdays for recovery. Of the total amount of work-related injuries, 10-20% will cause temporary or permanent vision loss. In fact, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) reports that workplace eye injuries cost an estimated $300 million a year in lost productivity, medical treatment and worker compensation.

“As Ben Franklin once said, ‘an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure,'” said ophthalmologist Anne Sumers, MD, clinical spokesperson for the American Academy of Ophthalmology. “It takes very little effort to protect yourself from on-the-job hazards that can cause blinding eye injuries.”

Did you know that each year an estimated 2.4 million eye injuries occur in the United States and according to OSHA cost an estimated $300 million in lost productivity, medical treatment and worker compensation?

Top causes of workplace eye injuries

  • Flying objects or airborne particles such as wood splinters, metal shavings or crystalline silica.
  • Tools that slip or malfunction.
  • Objects falling from above.
  • Splattered chemicals or thermal burns (welder’s eye).
  • Any combination of these or other hazards.

With our pre-negotiated frames and lenses, you can forecast accordingly. We understand the importance of safety, which is why our program includes safety frames with both permanent and detachable side shields, ensuring the highest level of protection. Additionally, all our frames and lenses are Z87/Z87+ compliant, meeting the highest industry standards.

Meeting the Z87+ Standard:

The Z87+ tests are an indicator of the strength of the product and its ability to protect the worker from a variety of workplace accidents like tools falling, collision with an object or airborne particles.

Prescription frames rated for impact protection will have the Z87-2+ marking.

Select the proper eye protection depending on the hazards you face.  

  • Safety glasses with side protection (side shields) if you work around droplets, particles, flying objects or dust.
  • Goggles if you handle chemicals.
  • Specially designed safety glasses, goggles, face shields or helmets if you work near hazardous radiation, such as welding, lasers or fiber optics.

Training and Education

To ensure employee safety, it is important that employers establish a clear written policy and appropriately train employees on the proper use of and when eyewear should be worn.

  • Conduct a site / hazard assessment
  • Develop a plan that is site-specific
  • Establish the proper eye protection based on the application
  • Conduct fit testing to ensure proper fit and that there are no gaps or exposed areas
  • Teach employees what PPE they are required to wear and when
  • Train employees how to thoroughly inspect and maintain their PPE
  • Follow the manufacturer’s recommended use and warnings
  • Promptly replace damaged or missing eye protection
