What Does ANSI Z87.1 Standards Mean?

ANSI is an acronym for the American National Standards Institute, a nonprofit organization the the primary mission to “Enhance both the global competitiveness of U.S. business and the U.S. quality of life by promoting and facilitating voluntary consensus standards and conformity assessment systems and safeguarding their integrity.”

In other words, ANSI Z87.1 standards create uniform testing standards and guidelines for a variety of products and equipment used by businesses in nearly every sector.

The ANSI Z87.1 standards portion references the standard for personal Occupational and Educational Personal Eye and Face Protection Devices. These standards help ensure personal eye and face protection devices provide the necessary protection from impact, non-ionizing radiation, and liquid splash exposures.

The ANSI Z87.1 standards has been updated twice since 2003, with revisions in 2010 and 2015. These updates focus on product performance and attempt to harmonize with international standards while keeping the needs of end users in mind with consideration to workplace hazards and regulatory obligations.

The current ANSI.1-2015 standard continues to differentiate protectors based on specific risks with additional emphasis placed on enabling users to select the appropriate protector based on their environment and the hazard.

General Requirements For ANSI Z87.1 Standards

Since most people have never read the ANSI Z87.1 document, they may not fully understand what this certification covers. The ANSI Z87.1 standards help in this effort by providing a certification system organized based on encountered hazards.

The ANSI Z87.1 standards means the choice of safety eyewear revolves around what best represents the protection needed for the specific hazards encountered in the workplace. The most common hazards include:

Blunt impact
Splashes and droplets
Small dust particles

Most safety eyewear manufacturers now provide packaging and product information revolving around how products meet these standards. Note that prescription safety lenses are also allowed under this standard. Previously, they had to be a certain thickness, but thinner prescription lenses are now allowed if they meet high-impact ANSI Z87.1 standards testing requirements.

What Is The ANSI Z87.1 Standards Testing Process?

ANSI Z87.1 standards safety glasses undergo intensive testing to ensure they’ll protect eyes as expected. Tests include…

Basic and high-impact for lenses and frames.
Exposure to non-ionizing radiation and chemicals.
Durability to flammables and corrosion.
After seeing how badly non-safety-rated eyewear fails these basic tests, you’ll only want to purchase ANSI Z87.1 standards eyewear.
