The Eye Safety training provides valuable information regarding eye protection, with an emphasis on personal responsibility.
It's hard for us to imagine a more devastating loss than the loss of our sight. Yet we often take eyesight and eye safety for granted. About three-fifths of all eye injuries happen to workers who are not wearing any eye protection. The vast majority of the injuries suffered by those with protection result from wearing types of eye wear that are inadequate for the job.
This course provides three steps to eye safety that are easy to relate to and understand. A powerful reinforcement for safe behavior includes interviews with people who would have actually lost their eyesight; and they explain how different the outcome would be if they had been wearing eye protection. The training also re-enacts accidents to illustrate the importance of wearing eye protection; keeping it clean and fit for use; and wearing the right protection for the job.
