800, 000 Americans experience an eye injury at work every year. That results 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.
Choose Your Flat Benefit
There's no need to establish a benefit amount on an employee-by-employee basis. Most employers need little more than $150 per worker, so use that amount as a guide. Now you can leave all the other details to your Walmart Vision Center.
Include Eye Exams
Even the best safety glasses can do little to prevent accidents caused by vision problems. Three quarters of all workers need prescription lenses, so eye exams are an important part of your PPE program. The Bridge system allows you to include them in your strategy, so you can cater towards vision loss from two angles: by letting existing spectacle-wearers acquire prescriptions for their ANSI products, and by detecting vision loss in staff who don't yet wear prescription lenses.
Let Your Vision Center Guide Your Staff
Include Redemption Instructions
Your safety glasses program must revolve around OSHA regulations and ANSI specifications. These vary according to employee role, so we let you choose redemption requirements for your staff. Use our dropdown menu to choose the precise ANSI ratings and hazard assessment guides for each work role.
We allow you to include redemption instructions in every order specifying the kind of glasses your employees can and cannot choose. Our redemption instructions make room for several different specification categories:
A comprehensive safety glasses program can be tough on your accountants, so Bridge offers you a range of payment options for credit card payments, echecks, invoicing, ACH, and direct deposit. If you want to take advantage of this service, just pick up the phone. We understand that the businesses we work with need to know exactly how much their staff has spent, so we'll make sure you can easily track expenditure and credit returned. Our reporting tools will make your bookkeeping a breeze.
Take Advantage of Our Demos
If you're struggling with any part of the Vision program, we offer comprehensive demonstrations. Unlike many of our competitors, we only offer human support, so wave goodbye to circular bot conversations that get you nowhere. You can get in touch with our team via phone at 888-752-1120. If you prefer digital support, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or use our chat tool directly through our website. You can also use our prescription safety glasses program video tour page as a guide.
Work on Your Compliance
Noncompliance can destroy even the most carefully-designed PPE program, so we provide printable flyers to remind your staff to fulfil their part of your PPE program. Our printable resources are perfect for your HR and safety managers. They educate your staff on eye safety in the workplace and teach them how to use their Bridge digital payment cards. Our posters and flyers are offered in English and Spanish and can be printed on any desktop printer.
Compliance is a part of your ethical duty. Every employer is morally responsible for:
Managing Order Processing
The Bridge system is carefully structured to include every component of your PPE program, from invoicing and fund allocation to the ultimate purchases. When you fill out your initial form, our system will record important data on your expenditures and staff so that you can track your data along the way. Our team will help you to set up your account via phone, email, or directly through the site.
Use the Dashboard Page
We've made sure that compliance tracking is as easy as possible. Our dashboard page will tell you which orders have been completed and which receipts have been generated. This way, you can easily check previous orders and create new ones. Each order has a starting and expiration date. Once the latter has been reached, your Bridge account and digital payment cards will be deactivated, so we allow you to choose your expiration period. We also make it easy to set a dollar limit, so you never need to worry about overspending again.
The Bridge Safety system caters for every component of your PPE program, from orders and compliance to invoicing and tracking. Our comprehensive reporting tools and handy self-service system couldn't be simpler because great PPE revolves around a strong strategy. All it takes is a few minutes. We'll take care of the rest.
