The Benefits of Quality Safety Sunglasses

If you’ve grown up in Australia, you’ve likely developed a strong respect for the sun. It comes as no surprise that Australia has some of the highest levels of ultraviolet (UV) radiation in the world – on a hot summer day, around 10 minutes in direct sunlight is enough to cause sunburn. We must work to protect ourselves but also pay special attention to some of our most sensitive organs – our eyes.

There are no two ways about it, if you spend a lot of time outdoors under the sun, safety sunglasses are a must-have. With sunnier weather quickly approaching, there has never been a better time to invest in a pair of high-quality sunglasses, especially if you work in a trade that requires long hours outdoors. 

Quality is a Must

While sunglasses can be a stylish accessory, it’s important to recognise that not all brands are made equal, and many sunglasses do not provide sufficient UV protection and glare reduction.

One of the most important functions of sunglasses is to shield your eyes from harmful UV rays. Prolonged exposure to UV rays can lead to eye conditions such as cataracts, macular degeneration, and photokeratitis.

Another key benefit of sunglasses is glare reduction. Working outdoors, especially in the construction industry, often involves dealing with reflective surfaces like metal or glass. Low quality sunglasses do not effectively reduce glare, making it difficult to see clearly and potentially causing accidents. Quality sunglasses, on the other hand, come with polarised lenses that significantly reduce glare, improving safety and visibility.

If you work in a trade like construction, you also need eyewear that can withstand the rigours of the job. You don’t want something that will be broken the first time it’s dropped. High-quality sunglasses are built to last, with durable frames and scratch-resistant lenses, ensuring they can handle the demands of the work environment.
