The construction industry is one of the sectors where work-related eye injuries are common. The nature of the operations and processes result in flying debris which easily get lodged in the eye and cause harm. More than 50,000 people were admitted to hospitals over work-related eye injuries between 2010 and 2015.
As a contractor overseeing a construction project, you must protect your workers from eye injuries. Not only do these injuries cause costly downtime, but they also result in losses if you don't have workers' compensation insurance.
