According to the CDC more than 2000 job-related eye injury are reported daily in the US. About one third of the injuries are treated in hospital emergency departments and more than 100 of these injuries result in one or more days of lost work. Unfortunately, some of those employees will suffer with permanent blindness. Most of these accidents could have been avoid if proper safety training and equipment was available or used properly. Our "Workplace Eye Safety" training programs show how many eye injuries are caused by inattentiveness, not wearing the appropriate protective equipment or not wearing any Personal Protective equipment at all. These training products remind employees that eye injuries can easily happen to them and show them how to prevent these injuries. Topics covered in these products include: Physiology of the eye and how it functions, Common eye injuries and how they are caused, Short and long-term effects of eye injuries, Eye care and safety practices, Selecting and using the appropriate personal protection equipment (PPE), and more.
OSHA's Position On Eye Safety Training
The CDC (Center for Disease Control and Prevention) has related that there are approximately 2,000 job-related eye injuries reported on a daily basis in the U.S. Because of the prevalence of eye injuries in the workforce, OSHA has mandated strict guidelines for training, protection and procedures when it comes to eye safety (OSHA 1910.133). Sadly, many of these injuries, which have lead to blindness in many cases, could have been prevented if simple OSHA mandates had been followed. Inattentiveness is the primary cause of the majority of these injuries and can relate to issues such as; not wearing the proper eye protection and not knowing what to do in the event of eye injury incidents (chemical splashes, foreign objects in the eye, etc.). The training videos and tools, that we have made available, cover topics that include:
- The Physiology of the Eye
- Eye and face protection when operating machinery (OSHA 1926.102)
- OSHA’s mandatory requirements for eye washes (OSHA 29 CFR 1910.151(c))
- Mandatory eye protection during welding (OSHA 1910.133)
- Eye protection regulations for employees with corrective lenses (OSHA 1910.133(a)(3))
Whether it involves eye safety in construction environments or eye safety when working with hazardous materials, we cover the complete OSHA mandates for eye safety in crystal clear, engaging video presentations. All-in-all, we have created a one-stop source of OSHA-related training materials that cover every aspect of mandatory OSHA regulations. We also feature additional training tools that can either be purchased separately or are bundled in our more comprehensive training packages. These can include:
- Eye Safety Posters
- Eye Safety Booklets
- Interactive DVDs
- Leader’s Guide
Ordering the OSHA requirement training tools that you need is as easy as selecting from our online listings and placing your order. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
