Is your occupational prescription eyewear vendor participating in the ANSI High Impact testing certifications? If not, you may unknowingly be exposing your company to unnecessary risks.

ANSI Z87.1-2003 separates the RX lens classifications into two categories: High Impact: Will be marked with a “+” symbol after the lab’s logo stamping and must have a 2.0mm minimum thickness. Basic Impact: Only marked with the lab’s logo stamping (no “+” symbol) and must have a 3.0mm minimum thickness.

All CRX customers are furnished with the completed High Impact testing certificates and can rest assured that our lab meets or exceeds all requirements for these lenses. Please see Colts Laboratories for our published certification listing (from the home page, see the left column of options and select “Compliant Labs” and then “ANSI Z87.1-2003 Compliant Laboratories List”).

Why take the chance involved with a supplier who “says” they have a complete safety prescription eyewear program and possibly may even “specialize” in that area, but do not participate in the lens testing certifications? CRX can remove this potential liability issue from your program at no added cost to the company or employee.
