Different tools, devices and chemical products expose you to varied dangers—especially exposures which could leave irreversible effects on your body, notably on your eyes. Outside of most explicitly dangerous jobs, activities which may seem harmless, such as handiwork, gardening, cleaning,amongst many others, could quickly become dangerous if proper eye protection is ignored.
Most, if not all manufacturing environments are risk-laden—risks may stem from mechanical (contusions or spraying), chemical (direct or indirect exposure to substances), biological and physical (optical radiation or thermal risks) sources. Often neglected, the severity of burns deriving from basic products (such as ammonia, lime, potassium, sodium, bleach), risks causing severe eye damage with a delayed manifestation of symptoms (up to 2 or 3 days after the incident). In this case, nothing is more beneficial (and crucial) than a strong prevention plan which can protect you and your teams.
