Eye Protection   by KET

In 2001, 300,000 eye injuries were treated in U.S. hospital emergency rooms. This was 22.4 cases per 10,000 full-time workers. Of these workers, 80% were men. Compared with women, men had an eye injury rate 4 times higher (32.4 vs. 8.2 cases, respectively, per 10,000 full-time workers).

If workers use proper safety guidelines and proper eye protection, 90 percent of these eye injuries are preventable. A recent BLS survey found that three out of five injured workers were not wearing eye protection and 40% of those wearing eye protection were not wearing the proper protection for the job being performed.

Appropriate eye protection will depend on the potential eye hazards present in the workplace. Eye injures are separated into three categories:
* Physical
* Chemical
* Thermal

In 70% of cases, the injury was caused by contact with an object or equipment. In 26% of cases, the injury was caused by exposure to harmful substances or environments.
Injury sources were:
Scrap, waste, debris (34%)
Chemicals or chemical products (14%)
Person, plants, animals and minerals (9%)
Parts and materials (6%)
Welding torches (6%)

Eye protection is required for all workers working in:
* Dust, concrete, and metal particles
* Falling or shifting debris, building materials, glass
* Smoke, noxious/poisonous gases
* Chemicals (acids, bases, fuels, solvents, lime, wet or dry cement powder)
* Welding light and electrical arc
* Thermal hazards and fires
* Bloodborne pathogens (hepatitis or HIV) from blood, body fluids, human remains

Simply slapping a pair of safety glasses on everyone isn’t going to solve the problem. There are various types of eyewear protection for various issues.
Goggles, for example, are going to be more effective in an area with a lot of dust or very small particles. Safety glasses, even tight fitting ones, which are designed primarily to protect against the impact of flying debris, aren’t going to protect effectively against airborne particles and dust.
If the issue we are protecting against has to do with welding flash, than we need to make sure that the eyewear we are providing is specifically designed to protect against it. We can’t simply give the workers dark tinted glasses because it won’t be enough protection.
Protect your eyes because they are irreplaceable.
