At POIRIERCASTRO HSE, we take your health and wellness very seriously and offer the most comprehensive services in the industry.
We begin with conducting illumination surveys which examine lighting in your workplace and comparing the results to standards set by the Canadian Government and The Illuminating Engineering Society of North America(IESNA). Since lighting greatly affects vision and the ability to see clearly, if it is not adequate, it can cause a variety of symptoms such as eye strain, head aches, and create safety hazards.
In addition to this, our team offers vision acuity testing to examine employee vision health using various charts, and optical vision screeners. Tests focus on near and far sight, as well as peripheral vision and color blindness.
If employees require prescription glasses in order to perform their work duties, Our Optician offers further diagnostic vision testing and can provide our clients with custom prescription safety glasses that are CSA approved.
VISION ACUITY TESTING is conducted by our Occupational Health Nurses onsite at your facility for convenience. The testing typically takes 15 minutes to complete and involves a medical questionnaire, as well as a variety of testing to determine the client’s ability to differentiate colors, and evaluate their near and far vision fields.
