BENEFITS

Workers’ eyes are vulnerable to many hazards on the job, including dust, pieces of material shooting out of equipment and splashes of hazardous substances. So the OHS regulations in every jurisdiction require workers to wear proper eye protection, such as safety glasses or face shields, when there’s a risk of injury to their eyes.

HOW TO USE THE TOOL

Adapt this handout for your workplace and the eye protection requirements in your jurisdiction’s OHS laws. Give it to workers in conjunction with a safety talk on protecting their eyes. Give the talk to all workers whose eyes are exposed to any hazards on the job.
