Health and Safety at Work Regulations require the employer to identify and evaluate workplace risk. This is commonly undertaken by the company safety officer. The reason for this is that in order to do a comprehensive assessment, someone with access to, and familiarity with, the working environment is essential.
It is commonplace for your employer to issue you with a safety eyewear order form. This will stipulate the type of lens and lens material required. The frame may also be specified though, frequently, a choice is offered to the patient from a stipulated range.
However, if you are a self-employed tradesman we will perform a detailed assessment of your requirements and the type of hazards that are associated with your day to day work. If it is feasible we will contact a local company involved in the same, or very similar, work type. Alternatively we may contact a supplier involved in the supply of safety eyewear to seek their advice.
Once an order has been established the safety spectacles will be ordered from a recognised safety eyewear manufacturer. This will ensure that the necessary standards are met and that a proper safety certificate is issued at the time of completion.
