Preparation is essential to surviving any situation or environment
Taking steps to protect your eyes long term exposure or physical damage
Federal law enforcement and security officers often face dangerous conditions while responding to large-scale emergencies, extreme weather conditions, search and rescue operations, servicing warrants or patrolling our borders. The nature of their work along with the changing environments creates a unique challenge to protecting one's eyes. Being equipped with the proper eyewear instills confidence to complete the mission without compromising personal safety.
Federal law enforcement and security officers should always be equipped with highest quality eyewear that protects them from serious risks such as drugs, dust, debris, projectiles, bodily fluids and other unexpected environmental containments. Eyewear should be equipped with impact resistant, shatterproof lenses that are ANSI-rated for high mass and high velocity impacts. Eyewear should also fit close to the face and stay secure to maximize the safety and protective benefits. Adjustable nose pieces, removeable facial cavity seals and side shields offer more benefits when working in dangerous situations.
Working as a federal law enforcement agent and security officer in changing environments creates a unique challenge in protecting one’s eyes. Officers put themselves in dangerous situations while responding to large-scale emergencies, extreme weather conditions, search, and rescue operations, serving warrants or patrolling our border. Wearing proper eyewear instills the confidence to complete the mission without compromising personal safety.
Federal law enforcement and security officers should always be equipped with the highest quality eyewear for protection against serious risks such as drugs, dust, debris, projectiles, bodily fluids, and other unexpected environmental containments. High-quality protective glasses help avoid danger and distraction resulting from eyestrain. Eye fatigue develops over time and causes the entire face and temples to clench. Eyewear should be impact resistant from high-speed projectiles, ANSI Z87.1+ and made of shatterproof polycarbonate lenses. It is imperative eyewear closely fits the face and remains secure to maximize the safety benefits. Adjustable nose pieces, removeable facial cavity seals and side shields offer additional benefits while working in dangerous situations.

ANSI (American National Standards Institute) approves standards submitted by established committees in any given industry. Wiley X is proud to be a part of 3 separate ANSI committees and has a key role in the development and continued evolution of these standards. ANSI Z87.1 is the American National Standard for Occupational and Education Personal Eye and Face Protection Devices. It contains performance specifications, and markings of eye and facial safety products — setting the standards they must meet for protection and optical clarity.
ISO 9001 is a globally recognized standard which outlines the requirements needed to implement a Quality Management System (QMS) in any given organization. The QMS is a set of policies, processes and procedures required for planning and execution of production, development and service within the core business area of an organization. (i.e. areas that can impact the organization's ability to meet customer requirements.) The Wiley X, Inc. QMS integrates the various internal processes within the organization and provides a process approach for project execution. The Wiley X, Inc. QMS enables us to identify, measure, control and improve the various core business processes that will ultimately lead to improved business performance and customer satisfaction.
OSHA's mission is to "assure safe and healthy working conditions for working men and women by setting and enforcing standards and by providing training, outreach, education and assistance". By law, employers must provide their workers with a workplace that does not have serious hazards and must follow all OSH Act safety and health standards.
OSHA also sets standards for PPE. Personal protective equipment is addressed in specific OSHA standards for general industry, maritime, and construction. OSHA requires that many categories of personal protective equipment meet or be equivalent to standards developed by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI). This section highlights OSHA standards and documents related to personal protective equipment.

V0 ballistics standards consist of frames and lenses being impacted with a .15 caliber projectile traveling 640-660 fps, or a goggle frame and lens with a .22 caliber projectile traveling 550-560 fps.
Wiley X eyewear models that are part of the Authorized Protective Eyewear List (APEL) are tested to the Alpha version of the V0 ballistics standard which consists of a spectacle frame and lens being impacted with a .15 caliber projectile traveling 700-725fps, or a goggle frame and lens with a .22 caliber projectile traveling 580-590fps. Both tests are meant to simulate shrapnel that may be encountered on the battlefield.
EN.166 is the European certification for personal eye protection. When a piece of eyewear is EN.166 certified it generally means that it is a piece of safety eyewear.
The correct term is actually EN.166 personal Eye Protection European Standard, but is normally referred to as EN.166 or EN.166. It is the core technical industrial safety norm in Europe for eye protection applying to all types of individual protection of the eye which protects from hazards likely to damage the eye, except for nuclear radiation, x-rays, laser emissions and infrared emitted by low temperature sources.
EN.166 is often the minimum required certification regarding eyewear in Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).
Wiley X models meet the AS/NZS 1337.1-2010 standards. This standard specifies minimum requirements for non-prescription eye and face protectors and associated oculars designed to provide protection for the eyes and faces of persons against common occupational hazards such as flying particles and fragments, dusts, splashing materials and molten metals, harmful gases, vapours and aerosols.
Wiley X models meet Canadian CSA Z94.3 standards. This standard relates to eye and face protectors for industrial and educational processes. Hazards covered by the standard include: flying particles/objects, heat/sparks, chemical splashes, molten metal, UV, visible and infrared radiation. Requirements are outlined for impact resistance, ignition/flammability requirements, replacement components, clear zero-power lenses, prescriptionprotective eyewear, zero-power filters and zero-power special-purpose lenses.
