The United States Department of Labor has recorded statistics showing that thousands of workers become afflicted with eye injuries while working every year. Many of these injuries are caused by accidents that occur during their work as a result of improper eye protection. These injuries can cause severe health problems if not treated properly and might even result in blindness and death in the worst cases. As such, prevention is definitely better than cure. Not only will your workers suffer but your company might lose large amounts of money as a result of lost time and medical expenses. Here at Signs and Safety Devices, we offer a wide range of safety glasses that are functional and look good as well.
