Metro safety eyewearMetro™ safety eyewear moves ahead of the eye protection pack with a winning combination of safety, comfort, and modern styling. So, in addition to wearing them on the job as required, workers may choose the stylish Metro at home while doing yard work or just bicycling with the kids. And since June is the National Safety Council’s National Safety Month, what better time to introduce employees to unsurpassed eye protection that doubles as attractive sunglasses?

“People encounter eye hazards on and off the job,” says Matthew Love, Gateway Safety vice president. “By providing safety glasses that employees will want to wear, employers can easily and affordably help protect their employees’ eyes…even after they leave work.”

Metro offers a choice of four eye-catching frame colors to fit the personal styles of both men and women. Frames in glossy black or soft caramel provide a classic look, while frames in lively pink or timeless tortoise shell take a stronger fashion stance. All frames have a smooth, polished appearance and come in a variety of lens options.

Weighing under an ounce, with a soft nosepiece and contoured temple tips, Metro is also supremely comfortable for all-day wear. And the durable, wraparound polycarbonate lens meets ANSI Z87.1+ and blocks more than 99.9% of damaging UVA, B, and C rays. Introduce Metro to employees during National Safety Month and watch its comfortable fit and contemporary style increase compliance all year round, on the job and at home.
