Seeing is believing with Honeywell

Workers in all industries can ensure their vision is clear with the help of Honeywell Safety Product’s (previously Sperian Protection) guide to eye testing in the workplace.

Visual defects in the workplace contribute to decreased personal safety, work efficiency and performance. Poor vision can cause accidents, reduced productivity and worker fatigue.

A recent report in Australian GovLink encourages employers to introduce a Visual Performance Program in the workplace to promote safety and manage risks associated with poor vision.

If visual defects are left undiagnosed and untreated they may lead to reduced work performance and the risk of injury.

The range of Titmus V Series Vision Screeners from Honeywell enables employers to quickly access whether a worker’s vision is within the normal parameters.

The Titmus V Series Vision Screeners are ergonomically-designed, precision-built stereoscopic instruments which provide precise and prompt measurement of visual performance.

The range includes the Titmus V2 Vision Screener and the Titmus V4 Vision Screener, both engineered for accuracy, validity and reliability with an emphasis on convenience and ease of administration.

Ergonomically designed, as well as being compact and portable, the V Series range is ideal for testing workers’ vision to ensure they are complying with OH&S regulations and to guarantee their vision is adequate for performing their specific job functions.

Vision screening allows visual abnormalities to be revealed, including binocularity, muscle balance, color perception and deficiency, acuity at near and far and depth perception, as well as a myriad of other visual functions.

Honeywell’s guide to vision screening:

• The vision screener operator will ask the patient a series of questions while the patient looks through the vision screening machine to complete each test slide.
• Patients’ answers are recorded on a score sheet.
• Results from the score sheet are matched up against requirements for the worker’s particular job function.
• If a worker fails the vision screening test based on their job function, it is a prompter to have that worker see an optometrist in order to have their vision fully assessed.
• The optometrist will recommend the necessary measures to undertake in order to correct the worker’s vision and ensure they will be safe in performing their daily tasks on the job.
