1. Get Home With Both Eyes. Use Your Goggles!

There are strict OSHA rules regarding the use of protective eyewear such as safety goggles. They are a safety requirement when handling dangerous machinery or harmful corrosives.

Construction and industrial workers are especially susceptible to eye hazards. All sorts of flying debris, from sawdust and paint chips to concrete particles can seriously injure the eyes. Many other workplaces face flying particles, liquid or infrared radiation hazards.

So use this bold and slightly unsettling poster to warn your workers to protect the irreplaceable gift of sight.

2. Wear Eye Protection Before It’s Too Late

Following the rules of eye protection is vital for those who work with chemical and biohazards. Toxic chemicals and gases can enter the eye in a matter of seconds and cause substantial damage.

If you don’t want your employees to have bitter regrets of this kind, get this action-inspiring eye protection poster. With matters such as these, there’s no need for sugarcoating. What it takes is blunt honesty to exert the best effect.

3. Zoom Out From Your Computer Screen Every 20 Minutes

Computer screens are notorious for causing eye strain and discomfort. People who spend long hours in front of the screen should remember to give their eyes a break every 20 minutes for trifling 20 seconds. Not that demanding?

Best tactic is to make a pledge to yourself to guard your precious eyesight.
