Thousands of workers injure their eyes or lose their eye sight because they chose not to wear proper eye protection, not because they didn’t have it.
I BET YOU DIDN’T KNOW… if something happens to your eyes there is no quick fix!
Your eyes are extremely delicate and are very easy to damage. It does not take a hard blow to cause injury. All it takes is a tiny sliver or speck of metal, a particle of dust, or a trace amount of chemical to do a great deal of damage to your eyes. Possibly causing permanent damage and long term pain and suffering in some cases.
If there is ever any doubt in your mind about determining if eye protection is needed, consult your supervisor before performing any work. Don’t guess and spend the rest of your life with the ultimate consequence of blindness.
