Do I have to wear Face or Eye Protection?
Hopefully you never hear this from any of your team members, but if you do here is some extra information to get them accross the line.
"During the National Eye Health Initiative of 2006-2010, the most common diagnosis for eye related injury compensation claims in Australia was from a foreign body on the external eye"
Industrial related eye injuries are commonly caused by chemical splashes, metal or plastic debris hitting the eye, tools accidentally striking the face and improper use of equipment.
With that being said, why is eye protection necessary?
Legislation decrees that approved safety glasses or eye protection must be worn in a wide variety of workplace environments.
Statistics show that despite such requirements in Australia, 51778 people were hospitalised due to eye injuries between 2010 and 2015 *
