The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) is a nonprofit, non-governmental organization that works to improve the efficiency of organizations, often by improving safety.

 

The set of standards known as ANSI Z87.1 is specifically focused on Occupational and Educational Personal Eye and Face Protection Devices. These standards are written to ensure personal eye and face wear provide appropriate protection from

foreign object impact, harmful liquid splashes, non-ionizing radiation exposure, and more.

 

In order for a pair of safety glasses to be approved for use under the ANSI Z87.1 standards, they must have been tested to provide sufficient protection against one or more of the hazards to eyes. Third party testing companies can review eyewear and put it through the necessary tests to determine how much protection it offers.

 

These regulations and tests are designed not only to help ensure workers are protected, but also that the products sold as Z87 compliant are providing the right level of protection for employees.

 

The ANSI Z87.1 have gone through updates in the recent years, including a requirement of easy-to-understand markings on lens and frames, making your selection process simpler, and workplace safer.
