Protect Against Workplace Hazards With Task-Specific Eye Protection

As your company’s eye safety administrator, you’re firmly focused on getting your employees fitted with the best protection to help prevent eye injury and irritation. Eyesafe™ can help. It carries a variety of safety eyewear solutions specific to the jobs your employees perform.

Non-conductive frames

Electrical safety eyewear solutions

  • Frames specifically designed to be non-conductive.
  • Any metal is shielded, ensuring better protection from arc flashes.
  • These frames are common with utility workers and those in fine electronics technology that require specific clean room environments.

Impact and Debris

Impact and debris eye safety protection

  • All frames and lenses meet stringent impact standards.
  • Frames provide enhanced protection from shattering, dust and debris.

Specialized frames

Safety eyewear for liquids and chemicals

  • Eyesafe™ is the answer for frames and goggles designed to meet the D3 droplets and splash rating, and the D4 dust protection.

Self Contained Breathing Apparatus Mask Inserts

SCBA mask inserts for industrial hazmat and fire protection

  • Eyesafe™ provides prescription safety lenses for most SCBA mask inserts used in industrial hazmat and fire protection environments.

Protecting eyes in specialized hazard environments

  • Specialized hazards, such as foundry work, require special frames where the side shields are made with wire mesh for maximum protection. Eyesafe™ has the solutions your employees need when working in specialized hazard environments.

150+ Frame Choices To Keep Your Employees Safe

Eyesafe™ offers 150+ frame choices in various sizes and styles to fit the facial features of the wearer and mitigate workplace hazards. Eyesafe™ carries frames that are compliant to the Canadian Standards Association (CSA Z94.3) and American National Standards Institute (ANSI Z87.1).

Contemporary frames that meet impact standards

Contemporary frames feel and look similar to everyday frames, but meet impact standards. These frames can be made of metal or plastic. Many styles also include spring hinges and are designed to be extremely durable. Contemporary frames accommodate all levels of prescriptions making it a good choice for individuals with high prescriptions.

Sealed and gasket frames give extra protection

A close fit style frame also provides greater protection with a foam or rubber seal around the front of the frame. The seal helps to block out dust and debris. Most frames offer removable seals for ease of cleaning and replacement. Full seals and partial seals (dust dams) are available through Eyesafe™.

SCBA lens inserts

Eyesafe™ can provide prescription safety lenses for most SCBA mask inserts for industrial and hazmat workers, as well as fire fighters.

Close fit frames provide a snug fit

Close fit frames reduce the gap between the frame and the face. Most close fit frames have integrated side shields and generally provide better comfort as the design allows the frame to fit snug.

Specialty frames available in assorted styles

Eyesafe™ offers various styles of specialty frames including non-conductive, protection from chemical splash, and wire mesh shields for foundry applications.

Quality Prescription Lenses: An Eyesafe™ Program Advantage

Your employees deserve top quality lenses they can trust day in and day out. But be careful, because not all safety eyewear programs have the same standards for prescription lenses.

Take a pass on mass produced lenses

Some eye safety programs use mass produced stock lenses to reduce costs, which can lead to aberrations and imperfections. Not Eyesafe™.

Each Eyesafe™ prescription lens is surfaced and edged

At Eyesafe™ every lens is surfaced to a specific prescription and edged precisely to the choice of frame. This combination ensures safety, comfort and long-term satisfaction.

Lens designs from the best in the world

Eyesafe™ prescription lenses are designed by two of the world’s leading lens manufacturers. Both are committed to innovation and technological advancements in optical clarity.

A large selection of lens materials

A wide assortment of lens materials are available through Eyesafe™ and are customized for your employee’s prescription and workplace hazards. We want your employees to have the right fit and optical clarity, allowing them to work safely and productively.

Lens Coatings: Put The Finishing Touch On Employee Eye Safety And Comfort

Lens coatings on prescription safety eyewear enhance durability, performance and appearance. The choice of coatings available for your employees can be customized to meet your company’s budget and safety policy.

Scratch-resistant lens coatings

Prescription safety lenses that are scratch-resistant provide protection from fine scuffs, abrasions and marks.

Lens coatings with UV protection

Lens coatings with UV protection block harmful ultra violet light, especially for outdoor workers.

Anti-reflective lenses

Anti-Reflective lenses eliminate glare and may enhance clarity for some individuals.

Customized tints

Tints provide protection from bright environments, such as outdoor sunlight. Tints come in a variety of colours, each offering an advantage for use. Tints can be customized to a specific level of darkness based on your safety policy.

Photochromatic lenses

Photochromatic lenses keep clear indoors, and then darken when exposed to sunlight and ultra violet rays. The greater the exposure to ultra violet rays (i.e. brighter sunlight), the darker the lens becomes.

The Perfect Fit Program: An Eyesafe™ Exclusive For Your Employees

One safety frame does not fit all, which is why Eyesafe™ ensures the Perfect Fit.

Proper Fit and Compliance

Our optometrists and their optometric staff work to ensure the curvature, size and structure of each employee’s face is taken into consideration when fitting the correct frame, in addition to the employee’s work hazards and environment.

Providing the best protection for your employees’ eyes mitigates injuries in the workplace and liability to your company. It’s time well spent.

Canadian Standards Association’s Guideline on Selection, Use and Care of Eye and Face Protectors, CSA Z94.3.1-16 (Clause 9.1), states the following: Prescription eyewear frames should be selected to ensure proper fit on the face of the wearer. A qualified eye care professional should be consulted in both the selection and fitting of frames. The full guideline is available at  https://store.csagroup.org/
