Not all safety glasses are the same. It’s important that you know the difference and which ones your workers are using on the job.
All safety glasses should be stamped with Z87 or Z87+. If they are not stamped they are not an approved form of personal protection.
- ANSI Z87-rated glasses provide the standard level of protection.
- ANSI Z87+-rated glasses provide a higher level of protection for high-velocity impacts.
If you’re working in Canada, you can choose these ANSI-rated glasses or CSA-rated glasses.
