Are your employees at risk?

? Do your employees ever complain about tired, sore eyes or suffer from headaches?
? Is your place of work lit with harsh, bright lighting from fluorescent or LED lights?
? Do staff move between changing light conditions or complain of glare from reflective surfaces?
? Do employees have to concentrate for long periods? Do you see them squinting or frowning?
? Do they use screens or monitors to complete their work?

If you answered yes to any of these, your employees could be struggling with the strain these environmental factors place upon the eyes and surrounding muscles, causing them to fatigue quicker which can result in a drop in concentration and productivity.

Properly tinted safety eyewear, even indoors, can have a dramatic effect on the wearer’s vision, comfort and energy levels as well as concentration and productivity.

The uvex CBR65 lens tint has been produced to combat a number of visual workplace risks. Let’s start with it’s name:

C = Contrast Enhancement

The innovative new uvex CBR65 lens shade offers better contrast for clearer vision helping to reduce strain on the eyes and increase comfort.  The CBR65 lens shade helps boost contrast by retaining the blue components of the light, while green, yellow and red colours have their outline strengthened and the contours appear sharper. This contrast enhancement has a relaxing effect on the eye.

B = Blue light reduction

The tint of the uvex CBR65 has also been designed to reduce harmful blue light by up to 50% at 450nm making it ideal for tasks with high visual requirements, especially those carried out in bright artificial light, allowing the wearer to remain focused for longer without the strain. Although some degree of blue light is natural - it’s primarily found in the sun and helps regulate our circadian rhythm - exposure levels are increasing with modern technology and lighting techniques. Blue light can glare, causing the eyes to constrict. Over time, the tensing of muscles in the eyes and face can lead to headaches.

B = Blue light reduction
R65 = Relaxed vision

Designed with a 35% tint to the lens, meaning 65% of light is allowed to pass through the lens, the slight tint reduces glare from bright artificial lights, reflective surfaces or changing light conditions which all put additional strain on the eyes, can cause discomfort and increase the onset of fatigue. This tint allows the eye and surrounding facial muscles to relax allowing wearers to concentrate on the job at hand.

R = Relaxed vision

Facts about blue light


Research has shown that HEV light boosts alertness and reaction times, improves memory and cognitive function, and elevates mood, which is especially helpful during the day and at work.
 

Blue light is used as therapy to treat Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), a type of depression that’s related to changes in seasons The light sources for this therapy emit bright white light that contains a significant amount of HEV blue light rays, which help to activate the “daytime” circadian rhythm.

Chronic exposure to blue light, especially at night, can disrupt your circadian rhythm. This is particularly important to note if you have people working late or on a night shift as bright LED’s from lights or screens can disrupt the secretion of melatonin (the hormone that regulates sleep), potentially causing sleepless nights and daytime fatigue.



Harvard researchers have linked working the night shift and exposure to blue light at night to several types of cancer, diabetes, heart disease, obesity and an increased risk for depression.



A study found a 60% higher incidence rate of breast cancer in nurses and attributed it to the blue component in light used in facilities during the night shift.
