Eye Injury Prevention: Let’s Take a Closer Look
According to NIOSH, each day about 2000 workers sustain a job-related eye injury that requires medical treatment. About one third of these injuries require emergency room treatment, and 100 of them result in one or more days away from work. There are more frequent injuries from other causes; however, there are few that are as potentially devastating. Preventing eye injuries should be a priority for all workers.
This one-hour webinar will provide an overview of eye anatomy, eye protection strategies, the applicable OSHA standards, and personal protective equipment choices.
