Eyesafe Saskatchewan: The Eye Protection Program

The industry standard in quality safety eyewear from the experts

Eyesafe Alberta | Eyesafe British Columbia

Eyesafe is a program with a commitment to the eye health and safety of Saskatchewan's workforce. We aim to help reduce the occurrence of workplace eye injuries by offering a prescription safety eyewear program available to businesses and industries. Eyesafe was designed by optometrists and has been operating for over 25 years across Saskatchewan, and continues to help employers reduce workplace eye injuries.

According to the Saskatchewan Workers' Compensation Board, there were 1,118 reported eye injuries in 2018. The majority of workplace eye injuries are avoidable by the proper use of safety equipment. Eye injuries can have disastrous effects and risk resulting in complete or partial loss of sight. These accidents are costly to your employees and your industry. Employees without safety eyewear, those with ill-fitted eyewear, and those wearing dress eyewear or contact lenses are at risk.
