How does it work?
Use this app to help mitigate physical hazards and other potential hazards through appropriate protective eyewear by employees. Use this app as an occupational safety measure through promoting use of personal protective equipment by workers. Reduce workplace eye injuries and other work-related injuries that can be prevented by proper safety eyewear. Seek protection for your workers through reducing eye hazards like chemicals and metal particles in the work area.
Eye injuries are a major cause of lost working days in Western Australia, predominantly in the manufacturing industry. Most eye injuries in manufacturing are caused, not by sharp or heavy objects, but by flying metal particles smaller than a pinhead that can get around safety glasses, particularly if glasses are not properly fitted or unsuitable for the job. Despite strong emphasis on eye safety, eye injuries are still a major factor in the manufacturing industry's high overall injury rate.
