Q. Can Contact Lens be warn if safety glasses are also warn.
A. No, Yuppie Puppy Studios and it's GROOMOLOGY® Safety Policy does not allow Studio employees to wear contact lenses.
Note: Once Optometrist and Ophthalmologists understand the hazards in the pet-grooming environment and that some procedures and products used in the pet grooming occupation may cause wearing contacts lenses to be a risk to the eye; more will agree with our policy.
Part 2. TRAINING GUIDE - Employees must be trained to know the following:
Q. Why eye protection is necessary:
A. Listed above are job hazards that require eye protection. The Protective Equipment section of the chart describes the required PPE equipment for the task hazards.
Q. How eye protection protects the wearer:
A. The use of ANSI approved safety glasses with side shields are designed to protect against airborne particles that may enter and rupture the eyeball.
Q. What the limitations of the eye protection are:
A. Safety glasses will not stop all projectiles and may not catch dust or liquid splashes. Using chemical or safety goggles or face shields offer better protection against some of these exposures.
Q. When eye or face protection must be worn:
A. Protection must be worn when there is a potential for injury to the eyes or face from flying particles, liquid chemicals, product vapors, or cleaning solution gases, or any combination of the above.
Q. What proper procedure is for putting the protective eyewear on for comfortable and effective fit:
A. Protective eyewear must fit closely to the eye and/or face to prevent particle entry into the eyes. They must be tight enough not to fall off but must be comfortable. Protection should be adjusted to provide maximum protection to the areas being protected. Goggles can be worn over glasses and can be vented or non-vented. Proper eye protection should always be utilized.
Q. How signs of wear identified are:
A. When eye protection becomes chipped, scratched, or scraped, or there is a loss of elasticity or fraying of headbands, it should be replaced. Pits or scratches may effect the impact resistance of the lens or the frame. Wearers should inspect eye and face protection before wearing and replace any defective equipment.
Q. How safety eyewear may be cleaned and disinfected:
A. Eye and face protection should be kept clean based on the manufacturer's recommended instructions. Lenses of the eye protection must be kept clean. Daily inspection and cleaning of eye protection with soap and warm water or with a cleaning solution and tissue is recommended.
