Most people do not think of eye safety at home, but half of all eye injuries happen in this “safe” place. What’s more, about 90% of all eye injuries could be prevented by wearing proper eye protection.
From cooking and cleaning to mowing the lawn and do-it-yourself home repairs, eye injuries occur every day while performing routine activities around the house. When tackling chores and tasks at home, it’s easy to become complacent about safety precautions. However, since one-quarter of all eye injuries result in time off work due to their severity, there are some safety tips worth following.
First of all, invest in a pair of CSA-certified safety glasses and use them around home. They are inexpensive and available at hardware and home building supply stores.
