Prescription Safety Glasses
The Faculty of Science strives to provide all the tools required for a safe research area and workplace. Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) allows for execution of hazardous work and prescription safety glasses are a great tool to have if available.
The Faculty of Science has agreed to cover the costs for prescription safety glasses for full-time employees who work for the faculty but do not conduct research with a professor. This includes all staff that work in undergraduate labs, machine and electronic shops. This program is through Securovision and provides prescription safety glasses every five years.
