Aug. 22, 2008 - PRLog -- Austin, Texas – The Workplace Safety Store has updated the eye safety meeting kit VIDEO/DVD program to include the latest information available to companies. The VIDEO/DVD includes information on common eye injuries and how they are caused, short and long-term effects of eye injuries, eye care and safety practices, the selection and the use of personal protective equipment. TWSS is on the web at http://safety.1800inet.com.

“Government statistics show that each day about 2000 U.S. workers have a job-related eye injury that requires medical treatment, says Robin Watson, of the Workplace Safety Store. “Eye safety products and information can really help companies cut down those kind of statistics and at the same time, the high cost of treatment.”

Government reports also show that about one third of eye injuries are treated in hospital emergency departments and more than 100 of these injuries result in one or more days of lost work. The majority of these injuries result from small particles or objects striking or abrading the eye.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration standards require that employers provide workers with suitable eye protection. To be effective, the eyewear must be of the appropriate type for the hazard encountered and properly fitted. A Labor Department's Bureau of Labor Statistics survey showed that 94% of the injuries to workers wearing eye protection resulted from objects or chemicals going around or under the protector. Eye protective devices should allow for air to circulate between the eye and the lens. Only 13 workers injured while wearing eye protection reported breakage.
Nearly one-fifth of the injured workers with eye protection wore face shields or welding helmets. However, only six percent of the workers injured while wearing eye protection wore goggles, which generally offer better protection for the eyes. Best protection is afforded when goggles are worn with face shields.
