What is a Safety Glasses Program?

As an employer, you have a lot on your plate. Determining each and every one of your employee’s safety needs can be an overwhelming and stressful process. This is even harder if you manage a large company with many departments, each with its own set of safety requirements. Imagine having to oversee 50 employees’ different prescriptions, or 500!

A prescription safety glasses program will take the workload from your hands. A unique program designed to help the administration process and easily manage all your employee’s safety eyewear needs. From determining the right type of frames for the job, to getting the safety glasses in the hands of your workers.


How to select the perfect safety glasses program provider

While there are many program providers, selecting the right one can be daunting. Who can you entrust the safety of your business and employees’ to? To help you find the perfect match, there are various factors you should consider:


Flexible administrative options

It should not be a one-size-fits-all approach. Your safety glasses program provider should tailor the program to suit your administrative needs. For example, an online portal may be ideal if you want to manage the information digitally. On the other hand, if you prefer to manage the information offline, paper forms may be the way to go. You should not have to compromise your ideal style or feel locked in one way of doing things. A variety of frame sizes and styles should be available for employees as well.



Do your employees have access to a wide variety of optical dispensers? Do they offer on-site dispensing for smoother implementation? Workers will not want to drive an hour and a half just to order and pick up their frames. Accessibility is a huge factor in employee compliance with safety glasses programs.


Cost and quality

Implementing a safety glasses program doesn’t have to be expensive. As mentioned in our previous blog, working with a program provider that is also the manufacturer will cut costs significantly than buying from retail. Also, look for an ISO registered company that undergoes regular audits for quality assurance.


Exceptional Customer service

A program provider that truly cares about your business and employees’ safety should value the relationship above everything else.

Are employees warranty protected?

Are there hidden costs?

Are you protected from costs related to manufacturer errors?

These are some important questions to think about when selecting the perfect safety glasses program provider. You should feel well taken care of from beginning to end. Safety experts should be just a call away to answer any questions or concerns that you may have.
