Injuries in the workplace are fairly common. According to the CNIB 700 workers sustain eye injuries EVERY day in Canada. The estimated cost of this is about $80,000 in lost production per day in Canada. 90% of the eye injuries are preventable! Eye injuries can range from corneal abrasions (cuts to the eye), foreign objects in the eye, welding flash and even chemical burns to the eye. Safety glasses are required on most work sites today and help to prevent eye injuries.
