A recent OSHA study showed that 90% of all eye injuries at the workplace are largely preventable. Never underestimate the power of a robust PPE program. Safety eyewear will boost your workers' productivity, reduce your liability, and cut back on sick days. More importantly, it demonstrates that you truly care about your employees, and nothing earns employee loyalty as effectively as that. You expect your staff to be hardworking and dedicated, but those values don't come without investment. A safe workplace should be right at the top of your to-do list, and PPE is at the core of that priority.
Over 800, 000 Americans experience an eye injury at work every year, resulting in $300 million in productivity-related losses. So your PPE isn't just an ethical duty, but a management strategy as well. Still, PPE programs are difficult to manage. Employers must juggle prescriptions, fittings, ANSI ratings, and budgets. That's a lot of balls to keep in the air, so The Bridge Safety Glasses program is designed to take the burden out of the process. Let's find out how you can leverage it to receive its highest benefits.
The safety glasses market is growing at a startling rate. Every day, 2, 000 U.S. employees suffer medically significant job-related eye injuries. Ninety percent of those accidents could have been prevented with the right safety glasses, but US employers are finally taking action. The international safety eyewear market generates over US2 billion in revenue every year—a rate that's climbing with every passing day.
