Abstract
Nearly three out of five workers are injured because they were not wearing eye protection at the time of the accident, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. A simple scratch from sawdust, cement, or drywall can cause recurring pain. Two of the most common causes of vision loss in construction workers are metal slivers released during hammering on metal and nails rebounding during normal carpentry. But some eye injuries can also occur from exposure over a period of time.
