Safety Corner:

Eye Safety Awareness:

Most people might not think about wearing eye protection while cleaning, doing yard work or working in the garage, but according to the American Academy of Ophthalmology, half of all eye injuries occur when doing these everyday chores. While 90 percent of eye injuries are preventable by wearing the proper eye protection, 78 percent of those injured were not wearing any eye protection. September is Eye Safety Awareness Month, to remind everyone of the hazards in their homes that could damage the gift of sight. All it takes is a split-second accident that could 

damage your vision for a lifetime. Household chemicals cause 125,000 eye injuries every year, protect your eyes!

Safety Tips:

When mowing, or doing other yard work-wear safety glasses, turn off power tools when bystanders approach, and wear goggles to protect your eyes from fertilizers and other chemicals.

Eye injuries are most commonly caused by: Flying particles (most smaller than a pinhead), flying objects, chemical splash and being struck by tools.
