Safety Glasses Put Workers at Risk
We have all seen them. In school they were the ‘lab rat’ trade mark, nerdy safety glasses. In woodwork class, they were the green safety glasses that transform a beautiful girl, or a handsome lad into an instant geek.
It is small wonder that 8 years ago, when I gave my workers ‘safety glasses’ and so called safety goggles, they took them off when ever my back was turned.
They HATED THEM! They would call them their BCG (Birth Control Glasses). “We can’t get dates if we wear these!” Alternately laughing at them when they were wearing their safety glasses, and then swearing at them for taking them off was probably counter-productive as well.
What worked then for me works now. I let the workers go down to the safety shop and pick out their own safety glasses. They came back with $20 US cool mirror surfaced safety glasses. The problem wasn’t getting them to wear them on the work site; it was that they wore them all the time! THEY LOVED THEM!
Safety does NOT have to be un-cool. Today’s variety and styles of safety glasses guarantees that there will be an affordable, attractive, safe pair of safety glasses to wear. The cost of a slightly more expensive pair of glasses is instantly paid back with the higher frequency of usage by the employees. That is the real value for money in safety equipment. The employees are happy to wear the personal protective equipment without being reminded!
Hazardfree Safety Co-op, (www.hazarfree.co.nz) was formed to make access to safety equipment, like safety glasses, safety goggles and personal protective equipment, easy, acceptable and affordable. The Hazardfree Safety Co-op arranged discounts, (up to 20%) with Safety Equipment Suppliers, Wholesalers, and Retail outlets, and can provide safety eyeware for 20% off the retail rate:
