Why Workers Need Vision Care

Work & Vision

In our world today, there are so many different professions and paths to take when it comes to one’s career. With different careers comes different tasks, responsibilities, and work environments. However one thing every job has in common…. Is VISION! All employees need their vision in order to complete their day to day duties at their job. Whether you are a pilot flying an airplane, a receptionist at a spa, or a welder, the eyes are a vital tool at your job in so many unique ways. Some professions require employees to see colors, to see in the dark, to see from a distance, to see very up close, etc. Your job can become unsafe, difficult, or damaging to yourself or others without proper vision care and corrective eyewear.

OSHA Safety Compliance

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulates work environments to ensure and enable healthy and safe work conditions for all employees. Being “OSHA compliant” is extremely important and means the workplace has checked all of the boxes to be ruled as a safe and healthy work space for employees. OSHA requirements have many different areas for employees to comply with and differ depending on their specific work environment. Vision is one main area OSHA covers at worksites. For example, a pilot needs to pass the color vision test in order to properly fly an airplane which has many different colored buttons, just like a lab chemist needs safety glasses to protect their eyes from the chemical substances used in their lab. These are examples of OSHA vision requirements that workers need in order to be compliant
