Specialist eye care provision for Zurich’s engineering team

Zurich has appointed Specsavers Corporate Eyecare to provide specialist eye care for Zurich’s engineers. Under the terms of the agreement, Specsavers will provide Display Screen Equipment (DSE) eye care and prescription safety eyewear for engineers based at the insurer’s Birmingham office.

Zurich required DSE eVouchers for office based screen users and Safety Eyewear eVouchers for those needing personal protective equipment (PPE) working in the field. The DSE eVouchers offer a simple way for Zurich engineers to receive an eye examination and glasses. eVouchers for prescription safety glasses offer engineers the benefits of high-quality, robust, stylish safety eyewear to match their every-day glasses – whether bifocal or varifocal lenses.  Engineers can choose from Specsavers’ full range of safety eyewear, including JCB branded safety eyewear, so engineers can try on styles for comfort and fit.  

John Hartigan, UK Head of Engineering, Zurich said: ‘We looked across the market for the right provider to meet our needs. We were impressed by Specsavers and their online system which allows employees to claim back the costs of eye care and glasses easily through an eVoucher. We’re delighted with the service which has proved really popular with our engineers.’

Zurich’s team of 600 field-based engineers provide a technical support role for Zurich’s commercial customers, helping them comply with a wide range of legislation through independent in-service examinations of plant and machinery; identifying engineering risks.  All Zurich’s employees are offered a full eye examination as part of their standard benefits package.

Leonie Caul, corporate account manager at Specsavers Corporate Eyecare, commented: ‘We’re delighted to be working with Zurich and supporting their team of engineers with eye care provision.  We provided them with information explaining how the scheme works, which they’ve adapted and shared with their engineers.  We’re really pleased there’s been such a good take up of the scheme.”
