safety behind the wheel

Scary thought – 1 in 3 drivers do not have sufficiently good eyesight to drive safely

Our work on-site with clients invariably identifies a number of employees unable to complete a basic visual number plate test. How’s that for a sobering thought?

In fact, one in three people required to drive as part of their job don’t have sufficiently good enough eyesight to do so safely without visual correction. Failure to ensure your employees have adequate vision correction could have potentially serious consequences for them directly, but also for you as an employer given the legal and statutory obligations.

In fact, one in three people required to drive as part of their job don’t have sufficiently good enough eyesight to do so safely without visual correction. Failure to ensure they do has potentially serious consequences for employees and those with who they come into contact, not to mention your legal and statutory obligations as an employer.

It is, however, remedied simply with our vouchers for driver eye care. They not only help to ensure your staff are as safe as possible taking to the road on your behalf, we’ll also report back to you on an employee’s visual acuity, identifying and correcting any issues to required standards to ensure peace of mind for them – and for you.

Having worked with the team at EyecarePlans for several years I would encourage any employer to work with them in providing for the optical welfare of their employees. The quality of the service, simplicity of the system and the customer service they provide are excellent.

Additionally, employees working in hazardous environments are entitled to protective eyewear as described in the Personal Protective Equipment at Work Regulations 1992.
