Good vision is key in our daily life and at work. 80% of the information we receive is received through our eyes.
With construction work, your eyes are exposed to many risks. Common risks include:
- Mechanical risks
- Exposure to chemical environments
- Harmful UV rays and blue-violet light
Long-term exposure to UV light can result in increasing the risk of developing cataracts, retinal damage, Pterygia (visible growths on the eye) and macular degeneration.
Construction workers working outdoors are exposed to harmful UV rays and blue-violet light. Protect your eyes from UV damage by wearing glasses with an anti-reflective coating applied to the lenses.
