Construction: Eye Safety
Our eyes are the most important link we have to the world around us. Through our eyes, we interact with our environment and, each other, but we're born with just one pair of eyes, and they're fragile. If we're not careful, these "windows to the world" could close forever. There are a lot of hazards out there that can cause eye problems, so we need to learn how to take care of our eyes and protect them from injury, both on the job and at home.
To help address these potential problems, this program is designed to present the fundamentals of eye safety to all employees. Topics include causes of eyestrain, wearing contacts at work, protective eyewear for flying particles and chemical splashes, welding helmets, selection and care of eyewear and responding to eye problems.
