MedSun: Newsletter #55, December 2010

Lab Manager Magazine

Approximately 2,000 eye injuries occur on the job every day, resulting in lost time away from work. And three out of five eye injuries are due to employees not wearing any eye protection at all. Even minor eye injuries can cause long-term vision problems and suffering. Research laboratories have their own unique eye hazards, and eye protection should be worn all the time, even by visitors. It is also not a question of when eye protection is needed, but the correct type of safety eyewear; many of the 2,000 injuries per day that require medical attention are caused by wearing the wrong type of eyewear. This article provides tips on how to prevent eye injuries.
