CONSTRUCTION HAS THE HIGHEST RATE! Every day, more than 120 construction workers are disabled and forced to miss work because of an eye injury. the alternative . . .:  the alternative . . . Wearing protective glasses that cost as little as $ 7.50 !! MORE IMPORTANTLY, THOSE GLASSES WILL SAVE YOUR EYES. It only takes a split second to injure your eye. But it takes a lot more time (and money) to heal. how do eye injuries occur?:  how do eye injuries occur? At George Washington University Emergency Department, over 300 construction workers have been treated for eye injuries since 1990. ELECTRICIANS, PLUMBERS AND PIPEFITTERS RANK IN THE TOP FIVE TRADES. This is what we have learned about the circumstances of their eye injuries…. Slide5:  what is getting into your eyes? Solvent splashes grinding dust Insulation fibers Solder Specks Nails bits of wire liquids or gases under PRESSURE Welding Fumes Glass Electrical Sparks Slide6:  the WHEN and HOW of eye injuries Eye injuries can occur anytime anywhere on the job ! If you .... work overhead weld use power tools work on live circuits work with pressurized liquids or gas .... you are especially at RISK! Slide7:  wires conduits light units drop ceilings hangers smoke detectors drilling holes soldering …and don’t forget about the prep work overhead work Electricians get eye injuries when they work with…. overhead work:  overhead work Plumbers get eye injuries when doing overhead tasks such as…. cutting pipes removing pipes welding soldering grinding fitting installing hangers …. and don’t forget about the prep work working with power tools:  working with power tools Obviously, power tools create lots and lots of dust, not only for you, but for people around you. POWER TOOLS ARE ESPECIALLY HAZARDOUS IN A CONFINED SPACE. the innocent bystander. . .:  the innocent bystander. . . Some injuries occur simply by passing a work area or working next to someone who is grinding, sawing, or welding. Slide11:  eye protection: the right fit ... Some workers we talked to were wearing eye protection when they were injured. Sometimes it was not the right kind and sometimes it was not the right fit! Safety glasses should have side shields and if possible upper and lower shields. GOGGLES ARE BEST! Slide12:  what to do if you get something in your eye DON’T DON’T RUB IT! Rinse with clean water for at least 15-20 minutes. ANSI-approved eyewash stations are best. Eyewash bottles are not approved. BUT ANY CLEAN WATER WILL DO !! Slide13:  what next ??? Get medical attention!!!! Ask the safety supervisor or first aid person to take a look at your eye. You might even need a trip to the ER. Slide14:  what about a cut or puncture? DON’T DON’T DON’T wash or touch your eye or lift the upper lid of your eye! like the song says, let it be…. Get medical attention immediately!! Slide15:  workplace safety: are you ready for your work day? Do you have your SAFETY GLASSES? Are they HANDY? Do they FIT properly? Do you know where the nearest EYEWASH STATIONS are from your work area? Do you know how to get MEDICAL ATTENTION if needed? Slide16:  things to think about… WHAT WILL YOU BE DOING TODAY ? WILL YOU BE: using a power tool? drilling? working overhead? working near somebody who is using a power tool, welding, drilling, soldering, grinding, or working overhead? Slide17:  Have a Safe Work Day! Don’t forget to wear your eye gear!
