  Prescription safety specs
Posted by: l.hollands - 04-08-2016, 02:53 PM - Forum: General Discussions - Replies (3)

Anyone got any recommendations for any close fitting safety specs which can be fitted with -5.75 dp and -6.25dp lenses? The ones that I can find seem to be metal frames with the clip on plastic sides which still gives huge gaps at the top and bottom of the frames.

  TechNet Procurement session- presentation and feedback
Posted by: E.Gifford - 02-23-2016, 04:18 PM - Forum: Technicians' Network Meetings - Replies (4)

Thanks to the 85 people that came to the TechNet Procurement event today! 

It was really interesting to hear from Stephanie Holmes, Head of Procurement at the University of Sheffield, and to listen to all of the lively discussions and ideas that came up from the group work. 

What did everyone think of the event? Did you find out all the answers to your procurement questions? Or was anything missed out? 

Post your technician related procurement questions on the forum here and hopefully someone will be able to help!

ps. photos of the event coming soon!
