Specsavers to provide eyecare for Spirit AeroSystems

May 2012

It is announced today that Specsavers Corporate Eyecare has won a new contract to provide eye examinations, safety eyewear and VDU glasses for employees at Spirit AeroSystems’ UK facilities based in Prestwick, Scotland and Preston, England.

Spirit AeroSystems, with headquarters in Wichita, Kansas, USA, is the world’s largest non-OEM designer and manufacturer of aerostructures for commercial aircraft. Focus on health, safety and their employee’s welfare is crucial to Spirit delivering on their commitments and optimising employee’s performance and productivity.

In this fast-paced industry, on-site testing was a crucial requirement for the employees based in Prestwick. Specsavers Corporate Eyecare will visit staff in-situ to give full eye examinations and prescribe safety eyewear and VDU glasses as required. Employees in Preston, the smaller of the two sites, will be provided with vouchers for their eyecare.

Dona McLafferty, corporate account manager for Specsavers Corporate Eyecare, comments: “Spirit takes its corporate responsibility incredibly seriously. We have worked closely with them to find a solution that works across the diverse range of roles their employees undertake and have ensured that the message has been fully received and understood.”
