The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health reports that every day about 2,000 U.S. workers sustain job-related eye injuries that require medical treatment. We at Royal Oak Eye Care want to make sure we educate the Marion community about the importance of wearing protective eye equipment at work.
These injuries happen because of two major reasons:
- They weren’t wearing any eye protection.
- They were wearing the wrong eye protection for the job.
If you work around projectiles, chemicals, radiation, or bloodborne pathogens, you need to make sure you are wearing the proper eye protection. You also need to make sure you know the eye safety dangers at your job, while eliminating hazards before starting work.
If you have questions about the proper protection for your eyes, contact the Royal Oak Eye Care team, we’re happy to help you stay safer.
