Clean Safety Glasses

Safety glasses are one of the most important forms of PPE. But, dirt or smudges diminish the effectiveness of safety glasses by a significant amount. In fact, smudged glasses distract your eyes from your task- making them as dangerous as not wearing them at all! You may not realize that your safety glasses are dirty, so check and clean them often.

To clean your glasses, spray glasses cleaner on the lenses and then wipe it off well with a towel or cloth of some sort. Cleaning of your safety glasses only takes a minute or two, so don’t neglect to do when your glasses need it. After all, clear vision is essential to safety at all times, no matter where you are or what you’re doing. Knowing this will allow a quick alert to the EMS (Emergency Medical Service) or a quick search for them. In a simple scenario, someone may just be running late. This system is much faster than using a roster as you can say a number faster than a name. This allows you to speed right through the process which is vital when gathering at an emergency evacuation point.
