The Need for Safety Eyewear

Need for Safety Eyewear

Every year, approximately 3 million eye injuries occur in India, both in and outside the workplace. It‘s estimated that a huge percentage of those victims have lost some degree of their eyesight. While 61% of eye injuries occurred in manufacturing, construction or trade jobs, they are also common in hospitals and laboratories. In addition, to common eye injuries health care workers and laboratory staff may be at risk of acquiring infectious diseases via ocular exposure also.

Experts say, accurate protective eyewear can prevent almost 90% of the injuries at the workplace. From industries/factories and in research laboratories workers deal with machineries and perform important jobs for which vision accuracy for the workers and safety is a matter of vital concern for the management.

Why the Management should be concerned with safety ?
  • Improper safety eyewear hampers accuracy and clarity of vision, thereby reducing the efficiency of the worker.
  • Productivity of a worker is also reduced by persistent worries about breaking his glasses.
  • Loss of vision of a valuable worker can result from a sudden eye accident. Loss of an experienced employee further decreases productivity.
  • Frequent accidents may lead to labour unrest.
  • Proper safety measures and gears adopted by the organization reflect care, thereby adding motivational value.

To effectively combat such situations, GKB safety eyewear program offers eye testing facilities at various industry sites, followed by a diverse range of safety eyewear, customized to provide the best safety and accurate vision at that particular hazardous environment.
