MARCOM's Video On Demand (VOD) program on Eye Safety in Construction Environments provides employees with the information they need to recognize and avoid eye hazards that they can encounter on a job site. An estimated 24 million eye injuries occur in the U.S. each year. About 2,000 of them will occur today, and every day thereafter, while people are at work. All too many of them will cause the victim to lose some or all of their eyesight. But eye injuries can be prevented. Areas included in the program include how to prevent eyestrain, protecting against particles and splashes, avoiding radiation hazards, what to do in case of an eye injury and more.
- Upon completing the course, employees should:
- Understand the types of eye hazards that they can encounter in construction environments.
- Know safe work practices and protective equipment they can use to avoid those hazards.
- Know what to do in case of an eye injury.
