Each year in the United States alone, over 800,000 eye related work injuries happen, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Many of these injuries could be prevented if safety glasses were being worn as the largest culprit as cause of injury is ‘Scrap, waste and debris’. Safety glasses are designed to help reduce, if not eliminate entirely these types of eye injuries.
“We know that too many people are forgetting about their eyes at work and as a result we have added a complete section on our website where people can order brand name safety glasses at great prices” Said Joseph Ianni, Swift eyewear Inc’s CEO “Safety glasses are for everyone who work in an environment capable of having debris, chemicals or other irritants in the eye. We can easily fit your prescription into the safety glass brands we have chosen, or you can simply purchase a pair without prescriptions for protection.”
SwiftEyewear.com now features the brands 3M, Armour, Hilco and On Guard as part of their initial product launch with more brands planned for the future.
“Eye safety is important and your workplace should ensure you have the right safety tools in place for you health.” Says Pierre Brousseau, Vice President at Swift. “You protect your feet, with steel toe boots, your head with a helmet and your hands with gloves but we often forget to protect our eyes until it is too late”.
