Eye Injury Prevention
The When and How of Eye Injuries
Eye injuries can occur anytime anywhere on the job If you
- Work overhead
- Use power tools
- Work on live circuits
- Work with pressurized cans or lines (air, hydraulic, etc.)
- Liquids or gas
What to do if you get something in your eye?
Don't rub it. Rinse with clean water for at least 15 minutes. ANSI-approved eyewash stations are best.
Get medical attention! Ask the supervisor or first aid person to take a look at your eye.
What about a cut or puncture?
Don't wash or touch your eye or lift the upper lid of your eye!
What can we do to prevent these injuries?
Make sure the eye protection you have selected fits properly and is clean. One of the leading reasons for workers removing or not wearing eye protection is the lens became dirty and they could not see what they were doing.
CHOOSE THE BEST PROTECTION, MAKE SURE IT FITS, KEEP IT CLEAN AND WEAR IT!
