Should an employer reimburse for prescription monitor glasses?

The answer is yes. An employer must ensure the safety and health of its employees. When employees come or may come into contact with substances or materials that may emit splinters (or loose particles) during their work, it is important that they wear proper eye protection, in the form of safety glasses. But what about prescription safety glasses and the reimbursement by the employer? We're happy to go through all the steps with you so it's completely clear.

Measures for the employer

There are two measures an employer can take before he is required to provide safety glasses. First, he must identify what measures have been or can be taken to make eye protection unnecessary. If that is not possible, the exposure time to potential hazards should be reduced. If even that is not possible, according to the Working Conditions Decree, an employee is entitled to a (prescription) safety glasses reimbursement by the employer. For this, an employer must first conduct a risk inventory and evaluation (RI&E).

EN 166 standardisation and CE marking

The NEN-EN 166 standard lists the basic properties that all eye protection equipment must meet. Eye protection consists of two main components. Namely, the lenses (made of mineral glass or plastic) and the frame (made of metal or plastic). Both parts must meet the inspection requirements for the glasses to be called safety glasses.

EN 166 specifies the minimum requirements for a series of performance tests. This standard contains a set of requirements that can be considered a mandatory for prescription safety glasses. According to the 2018 Occupational Health and Safety Guide, frames intended for safety glasses must meet these requirements.

If all requirements are met, the frame is approved. The CE mark may be affixed to this approval. Seeh - Hans Anders Zakelijk offers prescription safety glasses with this NEN-EN 166 standardisation and CE mark.
