Splash Protection Glasses

Why do Splash Protection Glasses need EU approval 2016/425?

At all medical interventions where employees could be in contact with anything that 'potentially could cause death or serious permanent injury' the employer is obliged to offer his employees EU 2016/425 certified splash protecion glasses or Face Shields. Since Civid-19 can cause death or permanent/long lasting injury all personnel that is professionally in contact with people that could infect them with Covid-19 should be offered 2016/425 certified products. This also includes home care workers, workers at Corona test-locations, health clinics etc.

Certification needs to be carried out by an official notified body. Self made 'declarations of conformity' are not enough, the 2016/425 permission can be given by national authorities as well.

The glasses offered by ClearSafeProducts are bought by the Dutch government (LCH) and approved according to the 2016/425 certification procedure at least until April 2021 by Ministry SZW (see CE 2016/425 certification). Notified body examination certification is in process.

Elements to compare Splash Protection Glasses

  • Approved according to EU 2016/425
  • Comfort to wear, also over prescription glasses
  • European made, in this case in The Netherlands
  • Transparency of the shield (especially important when you wear it for a longer time per day)
