This training focuses on preventing eye injuries at work. There are many things around the workplace that can injure our eyes, such as dust or other flying particles, liquid chemicals or light and radiation. Using eye protection is ultimately left up to the employees; an employer can provide the equipment but the employee must maintain and wear it properly. This training covers what type of eye wear and face protection to use for different jobs and hazards.
There are different types of eyewear and the correct kinds need to be worn depending on the job, for the best protection. This multimedia video explains the difference in types and which ones to choose. This training also goes over face protection and laser and welding protection.
It is also important to maintain and store the eyewear correctly. Eye injuries can still occur, so the proper steps must be taken to prevent further damage. This course shows employees how to choose, wear, maintain and store their eye and face protection.
