An Update on the State of Anti-Fog Eye and Face Protection, Technologies and Best Practices
Fog limits the effectiveness of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for eye and face protection. According to the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), it is one of the three most significant barriers to their use, ahead of lack of comfort and fit and scratching. If lenses are fogged, people won’t wear them. If workers can’t see, they could have accidents. Fog forms on a surface when water vapor in air condenses in fine droplets. A good anti-fog (AF) coating should prevent the formation of such droplets, but not all AF coatings are the same. Typical AF products perform well...
Provision Increases Reported PPE Use for Mexican Immigrant Farmworkers
Objective: Personal protective equipment (PPE) reduces pesticide exposures, but many farmworkers complain that it is difficult to obtain. We examined if PPE provision increased usage. We also delivered motivational messaging aimed to promote PPE use. Methods: First, we delivered a daily survey through a mobile phone app to assess PPE use. Farmworkers subsequently received a daily, individualized motivational message based on their PPE use and reported difficulties. PPE use was evaluated at baseline and at the close of the study. Results: PPE behaviors improved for gloves (P?≤?0.01) and safety...
Changes in eye protection behavior following an occupational eye injury
This study investigated whether workers modify eye protection behavior following an occupational eye injury. Workers treated for work-related eye injuries were questioned regarding the use of protective eyewear for the work-month prior to their eye injuries and again 6 to 12 months later. Workers reported an increase in the proportion of work-time they used eye protection (from a median of 20% to 100%; p < .0001). The effect appeared to be driven by whether eye protection was used at the time of the injury. Most respondents (66%) indicated they were more likely to use eye protection since their...
Glasses for computer users
Many jobs include the use of computers or visual display units (VDUs). Many users of VDUs also suffer from refractive error (an inability of the eye to focus light). A Chinese author team is currently searching for the best available evidence on spectacles and surgical procedures to correct refractive error. Source : Glasses for computer users.

Liberty Mutual Research Institute for safety: Protective Eyewear in the Workplace is featured in our latest From Research to Reality newsletter
Every day, approximately 2,000 US workers sustain a work-related eye injury that requires medical treatment, according to the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health. This level has persisted for several years despite the existence of proven engineering and administrative controls for reducing eye injury exposures. The Research Institute has therefore focused its eye injury search on identifying factors that inhibit or prevent the use of effective interventions, in particular, protective eyewear... Source:
Dermatites de contact aux équipements de protection individuelle (EPI)
Les dermatoses professionnelles aux équipements de protection individuelle (EPI) sont essentiellement des dermatites de contact d'irritation et/ou allergiques et des urticaires de contact. Les professions exposées dépendent de l'EPI, par exemple, le personnel de santé surtout pour les gants, les salariés du BTP pour les gants, bottes et chaussures de sécurité... La plupart des EPI sont irritants surtout en cas de port prolongé.$File/Visu...
