"Appreciate the Danger" of Eye Injuries - Encouraging Worker PPE Compliance

Summary: Providing workers with appropriate eye protection is critical to injury prevention. However, this does not necessarily mean workers will use the provided protection. • Workers may choose to not use eye protection because they do not believe eye injuries are serious, they find eye protection uncomfortable to wear or they believe wearing it interferes with their ability to work safely. • Employers should provide a variety of comfortable eyewear choices and solicit worker input to encourage use. • Safety professionals in industries that require eye protection should strive to create a culture in which wearing eye protection is the norm.

What is the BOK?

The Body of Knowledge project is dedicated to creating a living reference that represents the collective knowledge of the Safety, Health and Environmental profession. While the preliminary work has begun, there is still more to do. The purpose of this website is to introduce subject areas that will eventually be part of the Body of Knowledge, and to gather feedback on the future direction, and ongoing assessment of what needs to be completed.
