Worker safety is a necessity so can count on Kimberly-Clark for protective eye wear solutions. Read the case study below to see how the Jackson Safety Nemesis Safety glasses made a real difference in the life of a worker.
Countermeasure: The employee was wearing Jackson Safety* Nemesis* Safety Glasses at the time of the incident. The piece of metal struck the right lens of the employee’s safety glasses.
Results: While there was some swelling and bruising above/below the eye, the Jackson Safety* Nemesis* Safety Glasses prevented the foreign object from entering the eye, which could have done significant damage. Had the employee not been wearing safety eyewear the financial impact to the company could potentially have been as follows¹:
• $42,809 in direct costs and $47,089 in indirect costs, summing to $89,898
• For a company that has a profit margin of 3%, they would need $2,996,600 in sales to cover the total costs of this injury.
¹ Using the OSHA Safety Pays program (https://www.osha.gov/dcsp/smallbusiness/safetypays/estimator.html), for an injury that results in vision loss

With the cold and flu season on the horizon, arm your office with cleaning essentials to keep everyone healthy and productive. Before choosing cleaning products, know the differences to make a difference in your office clean ups!
Cleaners – Cleaners are made to remove only the dirt and grime you can see. They’re great for a variety of everyday cleaning tasks, but don’t have any germ-killing agents.
Sanitizers – Sanitizers reduce bacteria, viruses and fungi and help prevent their growth when used to clean surfaces. They remove contaminants, but don’t kill them.
Disinfectants – Disinfectants are designed to kill microscopic organisms, eliminating the source of contamination. Read the labels of particular products to find out which bacteria, viruses and fungi each is designed to kill.

According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), thousands of people are blinded each year from work-related eye injuries that could have been prevented with the proper selection and use of eye and face protection. Eye injuries alone costs more than $300 million per year in lost production time, medical expenses, and worker compensation.
At Craft, we carry leading brands of eye protection including Jackson Safety, 3M, Kimberly Clark, UVEX, and ProGuard. You will find a variety of lenses and frames to choose from based on the application and comfort needed. And, you do not have to compromise style. Check out some pointers from Hank when looking for eye protection.
Find the Perfect Pair. When safety glasses are comfortable, you’re more apt to wear them. Look for styles that have adjustable features, such as nose fittings, temples, and lens inclinations so that you can create a custom fit for your face. Wraparound lenses add extra protection to the sides of your eyes and help maximize visibility too.
Follow Compliance Standards. The latest ANSI standard for Eyewear Safety is Z87.1, reflecting revisions made in 2009 and 2010. When you see Z87.1 stamped on safety eyewear, you’ll know that it meets current ANSI standards for impact resistance (high velocity, high mass) and optical requirements, such as radiation or shade markings for particular lens types.
Take Care of Your Safety Eyewear. Your investment will last longer with simple care. Wash eyewear frequently and dry with a clean, soft cloth. Wear glasses on a strap to hang around your neck when not in use rather than putting them down on the job. At the end of the day, don’t just toss eyewear in a toolbox. . .store it in a case to prevent scratching and damage.
