How to Pass an OSHA Inspection

A lot of attention surrounded the OSHA fall protection requirements that went into effect back in June of 2011. Smaller contractors still aren’t clear on how to best navigate the myriad of safety precautions. Fall safety and silica dust regulations seem to be more stringently enforced by the agency these days. Really there are (at […]

OSHA impact rated contact lenses

OSHA Impact Rated Contact Lenses Expect Approval

In a surprise move, OSHA is expected to approve impact rated contact lenses that meet the current Z87 impact requirements. New lenses that meet the standard will officially be listed under OSHA 20170401.Z87C. Lenses that exceed the impact standards will be able to carry a “Z87C+” designation. This is the same designation listed for typical […]

Radians Safety Glasses

Radians Safety Glasses: Polarized and Interchangeable

When DeWalt introduced me to the Radians group that handles their personal protection equipment (PPE) line, I was completely unprepared for what I would find. Although in hindsight, it’s easy to understand why DeWalt works with them. We originally looked at a couple of solutions for hearing protection and now it’s time to dig deeper into Radians […]

Edge Eyewear

A Closer Look at Eye Protection with Edge Eyewear

Eye Protection: What it Needs to Be and What it’s Free to Be No matter if you’re on an indoor or outdoor jobsite, eye protection is mandatory. I spent a summer working for a power company. There’s one thing I learned about eye protection there – it is required to be butt ugly. But does it […]

Edge Eyewear Safety Glasses Review

When you think about work clothing you may not readily include one item that I find absolutely essential: safety glasses. Fortunately, the new generation of glasses look nothing like they did a couple decades ago. Back then stylishness apparently didn’t make the top 10 lists of manufacturers who were designing products primarily to protect your […]

Combo Glasses Review - Safety Glasses with Earplugs

Combo Glasses Review – Safety Glasses with Earplugs

We wonder if Jake Wadsworth also invented the Reese’s Peanut Butter cup, because the combination of ear and eye protection available in the Combo Glasses makes so much sense, we’re surprised it hasn’t been tried before. With a product like this you’d expect there to be some debilitating compromise in either the wearability of the glasses, or the usability of the ear plugs. After much testing and use, we’d have to say that the Combo Glasses come through smelling pretty clean on both counts. On top of that, the glasses are usable in any combination of modes: eye-only, ear-only, or in combination.

Crossfire Protective Eyewear Review

Crossfire Protective Eyewear Review

Whoever said that safety glasses look dorky obviously never saw the safety glasses that Crossfire Protective Eyewear produces. Their glasses offer the looks of high-end sunglasses but with ANSI-level bullet-proof safety features. They are literally bullet-proof, at least according to their literature. With a claim like that, we definitely had to take these to the shooting range just to see how well they performed.
