Professionals across industries tell us that a fogging problem is a given on safety glasses, goggles and faceshields, but there are few statistics, standards or solutions. These field studies will provide information to help keep workers safer
Cleveland, OH (Vocus) June 24, 2010
Independent research confirms that fogging is a deterrent to workers wearing personal protective eyewear and a safety hazard. Now Defog It antifog is seeking organizations to participate in a 12-day field test to further explore the problem. The research plan targets organizations with known fogging problems, including utilities, pulp and paper, chemical handling, construction, law enforcement and military. There is no cost to the participating organizations.
The program consists of a 10-question benchmark survey, antifog products use, and a 10-question feedback survey for employees. Defog It will tailor the testing program to the specific needs of the participating organizations, create and tabulate short employee surveys, and supply Defog It antifog samples at no charge.
The company already has testing in place with a major Southwest utility, a south Florida military unit and a national ski organization.
“Professionals across industries tell us that a fogging problem is a given on safety glasses, goggles and faceshields, but there are few statistics, standards or solutions. These field studies will provide information to help keep workers see safe, be safe.” says John Swett, Vice President of Sales and Marketing of Nanofilm, maker of Clarity Defog It.
In a study published in Accident Analysis & Prevention Magazine1 in 2009, research with focus groups made up of manufacturing, construction, service, medical and retail workers showed that fogging is the Number One vision-related reason for not wearing protective eyewear in the workplace. An anti-fogging solution is named as one of the Top Five ways to increase eyewear usage, named by nearly 60% of groups.
