Your Eyes


The eye is a fragile organ - a small fleck of dust can cause conjunctivitis, a solid particle at high speed can cause a perforation of the eye, the detachment of the retina, or permanent loss of sight.



Acute irritation of the eye and burns from chemicals and solvents can also cause partial

to total loss of sight.


In the UK the Department of Trade and Industry reports 120,000 accidents involving eye injuries every year.  In the US 1000 work-related eye injuries occur every day.  Over 10% of these result in a missed day of work.  The majority of  these come from foreign objects, blows, chemicals and cuts to the eye - which are all preventable by wearing the correct safety eyewear.
