About This Course:
According to OSHA, thousands of people are blinded each year due to preventable work-related eye injuries. Additionally, the cost to employers is more than $300 million as result of lost time, medical bills, and workers’ compensation costs.

To minimize the risk of eye and face injuries in your workplace, it’s critical to take time to craft a comprehensive eye and face protection safety program. If you already have such a program in place, it’s important to take time to evaluate how effective it really is and how it could be improved upon.

Join us for an in-depth webinar on how to interpret OSHA’s detailed requirements for eye and face protection, as well as how to ensure that workers are adhering to recommended practices from eye-protection manufacturers.
