Safety Glasses Features



Frequently Asked Questions

What are Z87 safety glasses?

The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) is an independent testing organization that issues safety ratings that are approved by OSHA. Z87.1 is the rating for all safety glasses. This means the glasses meet the ANSI rating and are acceptable at any worksite or where safety glasses are required.

Do safety glasses have UV protection?

Some brands do have safety frames with UV protection such as Wiley X and certain Oakley. Polycarbonate lenses which is standard for safety glasses provide UV protection, but additional coatings can provide even more protection.

Can safety glasses have prescription lenses?

Safety glasses are available in non-RX, RX, and non-RX fit-over-glasses variations. There are many prescription safety glasses from many popular brands to choose from. Prescription limitations may vary across certain styles of frames.

How do you tell if glasses are safety rated?

Both safety frames and safety lenses are required to be stamped to show they are ANSI rated. Frames are typically stamped inside the temples or on the insides of the side shields. Lenses are stamped outside the field of view with an insignia from the lab that produces the lenses.

Does an employer have to pay for prescription safety glasses?

On May 15, 2008, OSHA began to require that employers pay for employees’ prescription safety glasses when they are required and the protection remains on company property. Many employers provide an allowance for employees to purchase the safety eyewear on their own.

Do you ship prescription safety glasses to Canada?

Which prescription safety glasses are best for me?
