Eyes are one of the most vulnerable organs in our bodies. Therefore, it is essential to wear eye protection as it serves as one of the body's most vital first lines of defence.

In most day to day tasks, loose flying particles can occur in almost any working environment, resulting in the need or mandatory requirement of eye protection for workers. Injuries to the eye can lead to pain, loss of time, loss of money and potentially damaged eyesight.

Some of the most common threats to the eye include wood chips, paint chips, concrete particles and small fixings.  Dust, smoke, and corrosive chemicals can also affect our eyes following equipment failure or accidents. 

Workers’ eyes are constantly under threat and risk from impact hazards. It’s an employer’s responsibility and a legal requirement to ensure suitable personal protective equipment (PPE) and eye protection are provided to all personnel at risk of damage to the eyes.

Safety Spectacles are the type of PPE most suited to lower impact activities including DIY and gardening. At Tiger Supplies, we offer an extensive range of Safety Glasses and Spectacles with different levels of protection and frame styles to suit a variety of everyday tasks. 

We specialise in the procurement of Safety Glasses and Spectacles which are ideal for industries such as construction, automotive, food production, pharmaceutical, oil and gas and civil engineers. Often companies or construction sites will have a policy for workers to wear spectacles on site.

Outdoor workers may need to wear protective eyewear to protect their eyes from hazards, such as grit and dust, as well as from regular UV light exposure. Glare can be distracting and affect your eyesight in different ways. Discomforting glare can cause eye fatigue. Excessive exposure to the sun can lead to disabling glare which may blind the eyes momentarily. 

Therefore,  it is strongly recommended to wear smoke lenses to counteract the effects of blinding. These types of safety spectacles can enhance your outdoor work experience.

Almost all of our Safety Spectacles conform to EN166 which helps keep our valued customers safe. EN166 is the standard specifying basic requirements for a series of performance tests. The EN 166 certification represents a guarantee that your safety eyewear has been analysed and tested according to European standards, and it has all the necessary properties to protect you.

Thus, manufacturers of safety eyewear must comply with essential rules. For instance, eyewear cannot have sharp edges and should be free from projections as these can cause discomfort or injure the wearer. Also, the materials employed for creating the parts of safety eyewear cannot cause any skin irritation.

EN 166 safety eyewear will meet the basic testing requirements. Thus, you need to be sure your eye protection has the CE mark and meets  EN 166 standards if you are looking for the right protection.

Prescription eyewear is available on a wide range of safety spectacles. Manufactured to specification, each set of lenses can be applied to a range of frame designs. Using three types of lens materials and three types of lens design (single vision, bifocal and progressive). It’s possible to tailor eyewear to meet your vision requirements.
