There’s no doubt about it: fogging of safety goggles can be a dangerous nuisance. A study in Accident Analysis & Prevention magazine* researched the factors influencing workers’ use of safety eyewear. A group of men and women in the construction, manufacturing, service/maintenance, and healthcare industries were asked what factors determine their personal decision whether to wear their safety glasses or goggles.
Featuring revolutionary, patent-pending temple tips engineered for all-day comfort
February 14, 2013
Gateway Safety introduces Flight™ safety eyewear, venturing into a new territory of comfort and style. Flight is revolutionary eye protection, with an exclusive, patent-pending temple design that features the biggest comfort advancement in safety eyewear in a generation.
Bifocal safety eyewear is one of the fastest-growing segments in eye protection. And, just as the one-size-fits-all approach doesn’t always work, neither does the one-diopter-fits-all approach. As a result, Gateway Safety has introduced a 10-unit multi-pack in the StarLite® MAG line, which is Gateway Safety’s most popular and cost-effective bifocal eyewear.
Gateway Safety is pleased to announce the appointment of Greg Schmidt to the newly created position of Product Development Manager. In this role, Schmidt will manage product development efforts in all of Gateway Safety’s product categories, including eye, face, head, hearing, and respiratory protection.
In coordination with the 100th anniversary of the National Safety Council, Gateway Safety has launched a new website at www.GatewaySafety.com. The site is heavily focused on the company’s products, presenting them in a clear, easy-to-navigate format.
With the same commanding presence as the popular Conqueror® safety glasses, Conqueror MAG is sleek, stylish bifocal eye protection that meets the needs of workers who are working with small print or performing other detailed tasks. Bifocal safety eyewear prevents workers from switching between regular safety glasses and reading glasses, a dangerous maneuver that can result in errors and eye injuries.
According to the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, heat is the number one weather-related killer in the United States. You don’t have to tell workers during this record heat wave of 2012 that wearing uncomfortable, hot safety helmets on the jobsite can literally make them sick.
