Jeremy Salisbury, Head of Marketing at Brammer UK, explains: “Eye injuries in the workplace are common so it’s vital that workers are provided with adequate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) in the form of safety eyewear. It’s also a legal requirement.
“Every day, workers may face impact of sparks, chippings and larger items, chemical or water splashes, glare from sunlight or monitors and industrial processes, radiant heat and biological hazards, so it’s essential that appropriate protective eyewear is selected. Thankfully, developments in PPE, and specifically in safety eyewear, means there is now a broad range of options when it comes to specifying the most suitable eye protection.
“At Brammer we supply all the leading PPE brands and provide our customers with independent advice on selecting the most suitable protective eyewear for any application. Protective eyewear is an important part of any health and safety strategy. Ensuring workers are protected helps to prevent workplace accidents, and gives workers the assurance that their employer is committed to their welfare.”
The subject of protective eyewear is covered in the latest ‘Quick Tips’ Video from Brammer, which is now available online at www.brammertips.com. The ‘Quick Tips’ series are succinct visual aids presented by product group specialists and industry experts, to explain key issues and suggest practical advice for customers.
