In the construction industry alone, more than 10,600 eye injuries each year force workers to miss work. Industries that involve the use of tools, particularly blue collar jobs, have a much higher rate of eye injuries than any other industry. Obvious elements like nails, small pieces of metal, and splinters often become airborne and can cause major damage to your eyes. Smaller particles, such as dust can also be threatening, especially in construction sites, which is why every precaution should be taken to ensure your safety. Chemicals and other substances that can burn their eyes should also be watched out for. All of these things can cause extreme eye injuries and irritation, and in the most extreme case, blindness. If you are in an industry where your eyes are at risk, eye protection is a necessity you can't afford to skip out on.
Hearing protection is vital for jobs with regular or heavy noise. These jobs include any site where loud machinery or noises are common occurrences that are experienced on a regular basis. There are many methods that can be used to protect your hearing. A number of factors come into play including: the amount of daily noise you are exposed to, your natural hearing ability, communication demands (how often do you need to communicate with others), your use of other personal protectant equipment that might interfere, such as a hard hat, and what is most comfortable for you.
