Our eyes are our windows to the world. It's a common, yet incredibly true phrase that we are all familiar with. Our eyes are remarkable and wonderful organs in our bodies. Through them, we experience and interpret the events around us, earn our livings, pursue leisure activities, and enrich our lives. Imagine though that in one split second on the job, all of that is taken away. If you're exposed to eye hazards on the job, such as tools, flying objects, chemicals, and radiation, you're at risk of injury. In fact, 700,000 Americans will injure their eyes at work each year and that adds up to an estimated $300 million loss in production time, medical expenses, and claims. The good news is that 90 percent of all injuries are preventable with proper eyewear and education. Minimizing eye injury in your workplace: Assess your workplace. Take a careful tour through your operation's workspace. Inspect work areas, access routes, and equipment. Make note of operations and areas that present eye hazards.
