Safe Practice – The Cool Thing To Do

This year we have seen a lot of eye loss from work place accidents.

Something unpredictable happens and an eye is damaged or lost.  For the worker and the employer the experience is devastating.

In many cases safety equipment has been available but people don’t use it.

These days I wear safety glasses for most of the time.  I used to be complacent but  I got to see over and over again that it just isn’t worth the risk.

I think we all need to talk up the wisdom of using safety gear.  All of us play a role in making it the cool thing to do.  The sane, intelligent  way to work every day.

So stop and have a good think about your job, your kid’s job, your friend’s job – does it present a risk to eyes?

If it does please please get those safety glasses on right now.

I can make you a beautiful eye but it is nothing when compared to the one you have right now.
