Course Overview

Out of over 2000 reported work-related eye injuries a day, more than one-third result in a trip to the ER! Many of these injuries also result in loss of time at work or vision loss, which could be temporary or permanent. Some even result in the loss of an eye! Most of us know from firsthand experience, when something gets into our eyes it is uncomfortable and often at least a little bit painful. If you work with chemicals, high-energy light, and power tools, or are completing any task where there could be flying or falling debris, your eyes could be injured if you are not wearing proper protection. Your eyes could be scraped, struck, or even burned. This is why the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) provides clear regulations on how to protect your eyes and prevent eye injuries (29 CFR 1904 Parts 4, 7, and 39; 29 CFR 1910 Parts 133, 151, and 1030; 29 CFR 1926.102; 29 CFR 19.15.153; and other related standards). 

Workers in the construction, chemical, and welding industries are often more likely to encounter potential eye hazards since they more commonly complete tasks involving flying debris or splashing liquids. However, eye hazards and injuries are not exclusive to these industries. There are even potential eye hazards in your home right now. Many liquid or gaseous cleaning products are labeled as eye irritants.

Understanding potential eye hazards, how to protect your eyes to prevent injury, and what to do when different types of eye injuries occur are key to keeping the workplace safe for all. This course will discuss potential eye hazards and eye injuries in detail. In addition, it will explain the different types of eye protection and how to determine the type of eye protection needed for any given job. Finally, you will learn how to prevent eye injuries, how to handle an accident, and how to report them. If you need to learn more about protecting your eyes and the regulations in place to help prevent eye injuries in the first place, this training is for you!
