Eye protection is a crucial part of workplace safety: The majority of injured workers are wearing the wrong type of eye protection or not wearing any at all at the time of injury, and injuries to the eyes cost a staggering $300 million every year in medical expenses, lost production time and worker compensation.
Most workplace eye injuries develop after small objects or particles, like wood chips or metal slivers, abrade or strike the eye. Even dust can do significant damage to the eyes when they are unprotected.
