Eye injuries are very common in the workplace. According to the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), about 2,000 people in the US sustain vision-threatening eye injuries on the job every day. Accidents and injuries to the eyes at work include chemical and grease splashes, steam burns, ultraviolet radiation exposure, and flying pieces of wood or metal. Severe damage to the eye is often caused by actual cuts and scrapes to the eye itself.
Besides serious eye injuries, some workers may also be at risk of developing diseases from eye exposure. Some infectious diseases can be transmitted through the mucous membranes of the eye. Direct exposure to blood splashes, respiratory droplets from coughing, or from touching the eyes with contaminated fingers or other objects are often culprits. The good news is that safety experts and eye doctors believe that eye protection can lessen the severity of eye injuries, and in some cases even prevent them.
