Health and safety regulations

The “Health and Safety at Work Act” (1993) says that any employee working for at least 1 hour per day on a VDU on a regular basis is entitled to an eyesight test paid for by their employer. VDU eye testing should be made available every 2 years.

Employees who require spectacles specifically for VDU use are entitled to a free, basic set of spectacles from their employer. Typically this would be 5% of employees tested.

Graham Smithers can supply suitable spectacles directly to employees who require spectacles specifically for VDU use, and send an invoice to the employer.
