The basics of eye injuries in the workplace
Hundreds of eye injuries occur in the workplace everyday. Many of these injuries are caused by small, flying objects striking the eye.
Common objects include cement chips, wood chips, dust particles, and other small particles that can strike the eye. In many cases, these eye injuries must be treated in the hospital.
A second type of eye injuries include those caused by the splashing of industrial chemicals, cleaning products, or other chemical solutions. In industries where such chemicals are commonly present, employees should wear protective eyewear and take other necessary precautions.
