Eye Safety

June is National Safety Month and has been developed to help draw awareness, offer suggestions and educate. Protecting ones is eyes is one form of safety that we should always keep in mind. Each day more than 2,000 U.S. workers receive some form of medical treatment because of work related eye injuries. In addition are all those accidents that happen at home.

At work we should always wear eye protective wear when needed. OSHA demands that employers ensure each affected employee uses eye or face protection when exposed to hazards. Bones will mend, skin will heal, but eyes if injured can rarely be fixed.

Approximately 9,000 individuals will have their eyes injured due to fireworks. If fireworks and sparklers are part of your holiday fun be sure to keep safety in mind. If children are allowed to participate with their own sparklers make sure an adult is always present. In the case that an eye injury was to occur be sure to seek medical attention at once. Do not rub eyes, rinse eyes or apply pressure to eyes. 

I wish you a great month of July with lots of fun.
