uvex PSA-Verordnung Dr. Lurz Interview

The new European PPE regulation: Greater responsibility for manufacturers

“On 20 April 2016, the new European PPE regulation came into force, but is only legally binding from 21 April 2018. The predecessor of the PPE regulation, the PPE directive from 1989 and the national legislation derived from it, contained numerous detailed requirements for PPE. The new regulation defines several points related to manufacturing, labelling and marketing of PPE in even greater detail. Overall, we view the new PPE regulation as a good chance to
demonstrate our market competency and honour our commitment to quality.”

Anti-reflective safety spectacle lenses as the solution to challenging light conditions

Safety spectacle lenses are usually coated to prevent fogging and/or scratching. An anti-fog coating is especially important for high humidity environments or physically demanding work, such as in the paper or food industries. For work involving high dust exposure, for example on construction sites, an effective scratch-resistant coating is necessary so that dirty lenses do not become scratched when they are cleaned. This improves the comfort of the person wearing the safety spectacles, allowing them to concentrate to the best of their ability on the most important thing – their work.
