This program opens with a devastating workplace eye injury that happens all too often when employees choose not to adequately protect their eyesight. In fact, workers in North America suffer more than 1,000 eye injuries each day. Perhaps the most disturbing aspect of this statistic is that 90 percent of these eye injuries could be prevented by the use of proper eye protection.
This video discusses various types of eye protection devices and how they help to prevent injuries. Viewers will also see the tragic consequences that can occur when we don't make the effort to protect our eyes at all costs. Topics include selection and inspection of eyewear, safety glasses, safety goggles and face shields, protection from harmful light, lens fogging and timely response to eye injuries.
