Eye And Face Protection: How To Develop An OSHA-Compliant And Cost-Effective Program To Minimize Injury Risks

Webinar: ID# 1023686
Recorded On-Demand
About This Course:
March is “Workplace Eye Wellness Month,” which makes it the perfect time to assess your existing eye and face protection program, make any necessary updates, and publicize your program to engage employees in practicing safe work practices that minimize the risk of eye and face injuries.

OSHA reports that thousands of employees are blinded each year due to preventable work-related eye injuries. The agency notes that without proper protection, eye injuries cost over $300 million per year in medical expenses, workers’ compensation, and lost production time.

It’s important for safety managers to evaluate which jobs require eye protection. This means conducting a careful assessment and evaluation with the objective of designing the job to eliminate the need for eye protection whenever possible.

Equally important is your obligation to develop and implement an eye and face protection program that effectively protects and trains employees who must wear the required personal protective equipment, which may be complicated and expensive.

To ensure that you are properly addressing your compliance obligations to provide eye and face protection and keeping your workforce safe, join us for a webinar when Todd McIntyre, an expert on developing and implementing EHS compliance policies and best practices, will explain how to develop a robust and effective eye and face protection program that minimizes the risk of injuries and costly OSHA citations.
