By better controllinginterference between these sectors andincreasing the number of accessible subscriberchannels, sector sculpting significantly boosts networkcapacity and strengthens coverage.“Sector sculpting antennas take a scalpel approach to cellsites, delivering finely trimmed and tailored RF patterns thathandle wireless traffic more efficiently,” said Philip Sorrells,vice president, Strategic Marketing—Wireless, CommScope.“CommScope continues to build on the historical leadership roleof Andrew remote electrical tilt antennas in delivering creativeRF antenna solutions.”Remote electrical tilt (RET) antennas enable operators to4PrimeConnection | 2 ND QUARTER 2013

trends in eyewear protectionTrends in Eyewear ProtectionSusan Pingree, MSA, Product Line Manager, Eye/Face Protection andTrish Luedtke, MSA, Marketing Copy Writerprotective eyewear, more so than most other personal protective equipment(ppe), tends to be driven by fashion. Updated styles are constantly being introduced;however, many of the latest trends are also geared toward providing comfort to the wearer.ANSI/ISEA Z87.1-2010 StandardThe American National Standard for Occupational and Educational Personal Eye and Face Protection Devices (ANSI/ISEAZ87.1-2010, the Standard”) sets criteria related to the general requirements, testing, permanent marking, selection, care anduse of eye/face protectors to minimize the occurrence of injuries from such hazards as impact, and non-ionizing radiation inwork environments such as machinery operations, material welding and cutting, chemical handling, and assembly operations,to name a few. The nature and degree of any potential hazard in a work setting must be determined by that organization’ssafety personnel, who fully understands which eyewear is best-suited to protect in that particular environment.The Standard is organized by hazard (rather than protector type), and outlines requirements for eye and face protectorsas well as test methodologies that products must pass to comply.>>>2013 Tradeshow Schedule:nsc texas safety council and expo: april 8-9 in Galveston, tX, Booth 206enteLec: april 9-11 in Houston, tX, Booth 418asse: June 24-27 in Las Vegas, nV, Booth 1774apco: august 18-21 in anaheim, ca, Booth 1648rssi: september 29-october 2 in indianapolis, in, Booth 3331-3333aGL regional conferences: april 18 in orange county, ca | June 1 in st.

Eye/face protectorsclaimingcompliance withANSI/ISEA Z87.1-2010 will have theapplicable markingsas shown in the Standard:• Each lens must be markedwith manufacturer’s identity (i.e.,MSA); and• All components must be marked“Z87.” A “+” is added ONLY if theprotector is impact rated (“Z87+”); and• Markings for lens features, type anduse, as claimed by the manufacturer,must be identified, including, but notlimited to: welding, Ultraviolet (UV)filter, visible light filter, IR filter, andsplash/droplet.The Importance of Worker ComfortWorker comfort is among the most criticalcomponents in reducing the risk of eye injury.As such, options that enhance thewearer’s comfort should be identified. If aworker does not like the look or feel oftheir protective eyewear, they may “adjust”or pull them down (to avoid fogging,for instance), or take them off altogether,thus defeating the purpose of wearingthem.AnthropometryOne of the latest forces driving comfort inthe design of eye protection products is thescience of Anthropometry, or individualhuman measurement. Using Anthropometry,forward-thinking manufacturers aredesigning protective eyewear (and otherPPE, too) that more closely align with thefacial contours and shapes of men andwomen across multiple ethnicities. Thesecorrectly designed products optimize fit,especially through the nose and cheeks,contributing to comfortable wear, andhelping ensure safety and complianceacross a varied workforce.Fogging and Safety Eyewear: A ProvenRelationship for Non-ComplianceThe relationship between anti-fog and theproper wearing of protective eyewear iswell documented. A study published inAccident Analysis & Prevention magazinein 2009 reported on research done withconstruction, manufacturing, service, andretail workers. All of the groups named“fogging” as the #1 factor for not wearingsafety eyewear. And, according to OccupationalHealth & Safety (OHS), more than55% of respondents suggested an anti-fogsolution to increase usage of personal protectiveeyewear.It was named more often than incentives,warning signs, eyewear cleaning stations,or as a condition of employment.Unfortunately, the Standard does not offerperformance criteria for anti-fog (or antiscratch)coatings, like the Standard’s Europeancounterpart (EN166) does, so there isno Standards-based comparison amongmanufacturers’ brands and their coatings.Selecting the Proper FramesVarious frame options are available, suchas vertical/horizontal adjustment temples,soft-tipped temples and ventilated browguards. Proper fit through the nose andcheeks is very important, so users shouldconsider whether an adjustable, integral,padded, or ventilated nosebridge would bebest to optimize comfort.Ultraviolet (UV) ProtectionAccording to the Environmental ProtectionAgency (EPA), UV radiation increasesthe likelihood of cataracts, tissue growththat blocks vision, skin cancer, and degenerationof the macula. With eye protectionthat offers UV protection, filtering 99%-100% of UV rays, these problems can bedecreased. And many users, especiallythose working outside, are now requestingthat their safety glasses (and faceshields,too!) offer UV protection.If a manufacturer claims a productoffers UV protection, under ANSI/ISEAZ87.1-2010, the protector will be markedwith a “U” marking. An “U6” marking indicatesthe highest level of UV filteringmeasurable in the Standard. Users can(and should) request proof of UV protectionclaims from the manufacturer makingsuch a claim, especially as there are plentyof “urban myths” in the marketplace thatall polycarbonate offers UV protection.ConclusionEye and face injuries in the workplace arecommon and costly, though they can oftenbe avoided. Selecting eyewear that meetsthe needs of a varied workforce by offeringmultiple styles and features is important.Avoiding issues will also require asolid comprehension of the OccupationalSafety and Health Administration andStandard requirements, as well as a clearunderstanding of how to select proper PPEfor particular work conditions and hazards.MSA Products at PrimusPrimus is proud to inventory MSA’s qualitysafety eyewear as well as their entireline of safety products including harnesses,lanyards, head protection and somuch more, all of which will be featuredin Primus’ new 2nd edition Safety Catalogcoming soon.
