Eye Exams

Postby Katherine » Fri Oct 20, 2017 3:51 pm

We want to see if there is an Industry Standard for the frequency of eye exams for Press Operators, Plate Makers/Mounters, Pre-Press Technicians, Finishing Inspectors, etc.; and whether it is common practice for a new press operator, QA inspector or finishing inspector to be asked to do an eye exam when hired, or if it is generally done on an annual basis.

Tanks for any feedback :smile:

Hi Katherine,

I have not seen a standard, but I have worked at one or two places that did do eye exams and they were annual. Some companies also conduct color perception tests, also annually, but those are not eye exams, per se.

I should have added: In all cases I have seen, the company subsidized the eye exam and a fixed amount for eye wear.
