Keep an Eye on Your Sight
Being splashed in the face with molten
metal and being splashed with water will
have dramatically different results on your
body. One is a nuisance, the other could
rob you of your sight or cost you your life.
Workers experience eye injuries on the job
for two major reasons:
- They were not wearing eye protection.
- They were wearing the wrong kind of
protection for the job.
Flying fragments from wood chips, sand,
dirt, mists, dusts, hot slag from welding
and cutting, molten metal, and radiation,
chemical burns, and working around intense
light, lasers and glare are common eye and
face hazards you must protect yourself
