Services To Our Customers

OPTIQUE ZONE SAFETY

Optique Zone expanded into providing safety eye wear for the industrial field in 1990. Since then, Optique Zone Safety has been working together with companies, further raising the importance of eye care and safety to the public. In addition, we are also the sole distributor of Honeywell-Titmus, 3M, and CAT safety glasses in Asia; covering countries such as Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam. On top of providing the very basic industrial protective eye wear, these safety frames come in a wide range of different designs to suit your liking.

In 2016, Optique Zone Safety developed our very own range of safety eyewear — OZS. Incorporating aesthetics and functionality, OZS frames provide a break through in the mundane appearance of traditional safety eye wear for a more appealing outlook.

Some of our customers includes FMC Technologies Singapore, Hewlett Packard Singapore, GlaxoSmithKline, and Singapore Refinery Company. With more than 15 years of experience in the safety industry with certified optometrists & opticians, Optique Zone Safety takes pride in providing primary eye protection in the work industry to provide the best service for you.

What is Safety Eyewear

All Safety eye wear must conform to a higher standard of impact resistance than regular eyeglasses, which optical professionals sometimes call “dress eye wear.” This higher standard applies to both the lenses and the frames of safety glasses and goggles. Safety glasses may have prescription lenses or non-prescription (also known as”plano”) lenses. Regardless of their size or the durability of the frame and lenses, regular prescription eyeglasses do not qualify as safety glasses unless they meet specific criteria.

Safety frames that are required to go through testing — which includes high mass impact, durability and high velocity impact tests — to see if they fulfill the necessary requirements before being classified as a pair of protective frame. Like the frames, the optical lenses have to put through stringent tests to determine the basic impact safety classification for lenses.

The recommendations for safety eyewear for home and sports use are the same. However, an elastic band that attaches to the back of the temples for a more secure grip during active sports is highly encouraged.

Why Safety Eyewear

Eye injuries in the workplace are very common. The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) reports that every day about 2,000 U.S. workers sustain job-related eye injuries that require medical treatment. However, safety experts and eye doctors believe the right eye protection can lessen the severity or even prevent 90 percent of these eye injuries.

Chemicals or foreign objects in the eye and cuts or scrapes on the cornea are common eye injuries that occur at work. Other common eye injuries come from splashes with grease and oil, burns from steam, ultraviolet or infrared radiation exposure, and flying wood or metal chips.

In addition, health care workers, laboratory and janitorial staff, and other workers may be at risk of acquiring infectious diseases from eye exposure. Some infectious diseases can be transmitted through the mucous membranes of the eye. This can occur through direct exposure to blood splashes, respiratory droplets generated during coughing, or from touching the eyes with contaminated fingers or other objects.

Workers experience eye injuries on the job either because they were not wearing any eye protection, or wearing the wrong kind of protection for the job.

At OZ Safety, we ensure that we have all these issues covered so that our customers will have a peace of mind while being focused at work.

OZS by Optique Zone

OZS safety prescription frames (SRX) are thoroughly planned, designed and produced wholly in Korea. While designing the frame, the product quality and comfort, coupled with the latest style and trend in sports eyewear, was taken into consideration. OZS SRX were tested and manufactured in compliance the with Safety Standards of America’s (ANSI Z87.2 plus), Europe’s (EN166F), Australia/New Zealand’s(AS/NZ –1336.1) and Singapore’s(SS473) Safety Standard.

Every piece is hand-crafted; going through special coating, printing and assembled with precision. During the process of assembling, stringent quality control is being put in place to make sure all frames meet the high quality standard required.
