Wear Eye Protection
|Mine Type: All Mines|
|Category: General Safety|
A survey of road construction safety leaders estimated that eye protection was being used only half the time it was needed. The same survey said the number one barrier to wearing safety glasses/ goggles was "employers don't require/enforce usage".
We all know that eye injuries can occur at any time in the mining industry. We don't need to be told to wear proper eye protection. They are our eyes and it is our job to take care of them.
