Eye Injury and Prevention

Our eyes are one of our greatest assets. They give us the ability to see the world around us. If we do not protect our eyes from injuries while at work, we could easily lose that ability.

There are an estimated 2,000 eye injuries every single day on the job according to the Centers for Disease Control. These incidents cost employers over $300 million dollars per year.

It is important to eliminate or engineer out the hazards that could pose hazards to our eyes at work. Many hazards to our eyes on a worksite cannot be fully eliminated so proper eye protection is also critical.
