Did you know 6% of cases brought to Australian hospitals are due to sport or work related eye injuries?!
These eye injuries can lead to loss of vision and permanent damage to the eye, and this is all easily preventable by wearing the correct safety glasses!
Why is eye protection necessary?
It is all about prevention. Work-related injuries such as chemical splashes, and metal or wood debris flying into the eye can be avoided if the proper safety glasses are worn.
Legislation advises that approved safety glasses or eye protection must be worn in a wide variety of workplace environments. Statistics show that despite such requirements, in 2002 there were 6435 claims for eye injury compensation in Australia.
