This safety video points out that even though employers require and provide eye protection in hazardous work areas, everyday there are more than 100 eye injuries in North America. It features a real-life story that teaches many important lessons about eye safety. The person in the story, Jason, was doing a job that required goggles and a face shield. He forgot the face shield in his locker and didn't use his goggles because they were scratched. After being sprayed with ammonia, he couldn't locate an eye wash station until someone found him and helped him. He ended up losing his eyesight.
