The Occupational Health and Safety Act imposes a duty on every employer to ensure a safe working environment for their employees. This also applies to work on a screen, which must not pose a threat to the employee's health and safety. To protect employees, specific rules have been established: before beginning any screen work or if they experience eye complaints, employers must give their employees the opportunity to have an eye examination. If it is found that prescription screen glasses can reduce the complaints, the employer has the obligation to make them available.
