Should the employer pay for safety glasses?

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

Why choose our prescription safety glasses?

Measures for the employer

There are two measures that an employer can take before he is obliged to make safety glasses available.

Step 1
First, he must identify what measures have been or can be taken to make eye protection unnecessary.

Step 2
If the above is not possible, the exposure time to possible risks must be reduced.

If this too is not possible, according to the Working Conditions Decree, an employee is entitled to prescription safety glasses that are reimbursed by the employer. Before including this obligation, an employer must conduct a risk inventory and evaluation (RI&E).

EN 166 standardisation and CE marking

The NEN-EN166 standards list 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.

If all requirements are met, the frame is approved. This approval may include the CE mark. Seeh - Hans Anders Business offers prescription safety glasses with this NEN-EN 166 standard and CE mark. Due to their light weight, these prescription safety glasses have the highest wearing comfort. The result? High wearer acceptance.
