Canadian safety regs vs. US ANSI Z87 standards?

Discussion in 'Optometry Archives' started by William Stacy, Jul 19, 2005.

  1. I know there is at least one canadian o.d. on this list, but to whomever
    might know, where can I find a comparison of the Canadian industrial
    safety eyewear regs with the Z87 standards? I have run across a company
    that wants to be sure its employees have safety eyewear that is up to
    Canadian standards for its employees who will be working "up there".

    Don't know the US standards but we also use the ANSI Z87 codes up here.
    Polycarb at 3.0 mm thickness plus a safety frame and (usually) fixed side
    shields is the usual requirement. Some employers allow removable side
