Safety goggles, glasses and other forms of eye protection play an important role in protecting workers from eye injury. The following two reports take a closer look at the eye protection market and where it's headed.
Statistics show that eye injuries account for roughly $300 million in medical treatment, worker's compensation, time off and other related expenses. According to the American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO), some 20,000 workers sustain an eye injury every day in the United States, making it one of the most common types of work-related injuries.
While some eye injuries are minor, others are more severe and require extensive medical treatment.
Because eye injuries are so common in the workplace, it's important for employers to take the necessary precautions to protect workers.
If a worker injures his or her eye, the employer may be forced to compensate the worker for time off work, as well as paying his or her medical bills.
In the United States, employers are actually required by law to provide workers with safety equipment. Known as personal protective equipment (PPE), it's the employer's responsibility to provide workers with the right tools and equipment to protect them from injury.
In certain occupations, eye protection is a form of PPE. If a worker is exposed to potentially hazardous machines that could injure his or her eyes, for instance, the employer must provide that worker with safety goggles or other forms of eye protection.
