Chemicals in the eye and cuts or scrapes on the cornea are common eye injuries that occur at work. Other common eye injuries come from splashes with grease and oil, burns from steam, ultraviolet or infrared radiation exposure, and flying wood or metal chips.
In addition, health care workers, laboratory and janitorial staff, and other workers may be at risk of acquiring infectious diseases from eye exposure. And Some infectious diseases can transmit through the mucous membranes of the eye.So This can occur through direct exposure to blood splashes, respiratory droplets generated during coughing, or from touching the eyes with contaminated fingers or other objects.
Workers experience eye injuries on the job for two major reasons:
- They were not wearing eye protection.
- And They were wearing the wrong kind of protection for the job.
A Bureau of Labor Statistics survey of workers who suffered eye injuries and revealed that nearly three out of five were not wearing eye protection at the time of the accident.So These workers most often reported that they believed protection was not required for the situation.
So Goggles provide protection from impact, dust and chemical splash.
Like safety glasses and safety goggles are highly impact-resistant. In addition, they provide a secure shield around the entire eye and protect against hazards coming from any direction.
