Prevent Eye Injuries

Remember to always wear appropriate eye protection, it can prevent up to 90% of eye injuries!
If there is a foreign body in the eye, avoid rubbing and try to gently rinse away the debris.
If you are in a dusty environment where small particles are in the air around you, it makes a big difference to have goggles to limit foreign bodies in the eyes. Remain aware of your surroundings and keep your eyes and mind on the task at hand.
If chemicals have splashed into your eyes, remove contact lenses of wearing them immediately and flush your eyes with water for 15 minutes and don't cover the affected eye.
