Educational Resources for Understanding Safety Eyewear Regulations Available on the Uvex® Website
Reference Guides Support Efforts to Build a Culture of Safety in the Workplace
Smithfield, RI – April 7 2009 – Sperian Eye & Face Protection has developed a series of reference guides for understanding protective eyewear regulations. Available online at www.uvex.us, these new reference guides are designed to provide safety managers with the educational tools they need to build a culture of safety in the workplace.
“Our customers look to us not only as a trusted brand of safety eyewear products, but also as a resource and partner in their safety efforts,” said David Iannelli, Senior Product Manager, Uvex brand products. “We’ve created these reference guides to provide customers with useful information that supports their efforts to develop effective safety programs within their organizations.”
Three reference guides are currently available on the Uvex website. These reference guides address the U.S. Department of Defense Mil V0 Ballistic Test for Impact and the Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) regulations for eye and face protection as well as general personal protective equipment. Each of the guides provides useful industry information and delivers the content in three formats in increasing levels of detail. This format makes it simple for users on every level-from distributors to safety professionals-to focus on the specific information they require.
