7 Steps to Building a Successful Rx Eyewear Program
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, there are over 20,000 occupational eye injuries in the United States each year, resulting in $300 million of lost productivity, medical bills, and workers’ compensation.
The prominence of eye injuries and their life-altering effects make eye safety a critical area of focus in any work environment.
At ORR Safety, we believe an all-encompassing approach to protecting workers is essential. It requires the proper mindset from both workers and leadership, an in-depth knowledge of hazards and regulations, and the proper safety eyewear to ensure everyone goes home at the end of the day healthy and happy.
ORR Safety is no stranger to helping organizations apply this complete approach to protecting workers' eyes. We work with employers year after year to create an all-encompassing Total Vision program. We help you identify hazards and interpret OSHA regulations, select the eyewear to match, and set up an eyewear program that gives you the tracking and reporting capabilities you need.
The custom programs we create are sustainable for the long run, factoring in prescription needs, job roles, and employee voucher tracking. We even offer onsite services where our opticians not only fit employees for the correct safety eyewear but most importantly, educate them on the proper way eyewear should be worn in order to avoid injury.
A Step by Step Solution
After more than 70 years in the safety industry, we have found a seven-step approach to solve any safety eyewear concerns, while ensuring compliance with regulations set in place by OSHA. This guidebook walks you through our process by assessing your needs, determining applicable OSHA regulations, and identifying hazards. We then use this information to build a custom prescription eyewear program tailored to your organization that saves your employees both time and money.

Once your program is built, we help you train your employees on the process of obtaining safety eyewear from start to finish. By providing resources like video training, interactive webinars, and detailed training documentation, we engage your employees in the program early on, taking their feedback into consideration. This allows us to make any necessary adjustments to the program in order to get them fully acclimated.
