 Protective Eyewear

The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) reports that more than 2,000 people injure their eyes at work each day. About 1 in 10 injuries require one or more missed workdays to recover from. Of the total amount of work-related injuries, 10-20% will cause temporary or permanent vision loss. 

» FYI: Experts believe that the proper eye protection can lessened the severity or even prevent 90% of eye injuries in accidents.
Common eye and face injury causes:
  • Flying objects (bits of metal, glass)
  • Tools
  • Particles
  • Chemicals
  • Harmful radiation
  • Any combination of these or other hazards
