Ask Our Optometrist Care Team About Eye Safety in the Workplace​

Ideally, your employer will make sure that you know all the possible hazards that may lurk in your workplace. Your employer should also have a guide and set of instructions in place to prevent or respond to encountering eye safety dangers in your office, warehouse, or any place you work. Drs. Lisitsyn and Ilyasova, along with the rest of our optometrist care team, can either work with you to learn about all potential risks in your workplace while also advising you on ways to avoid risks.

What Can You and Your Eye Doctor in Bronx Learn About Your Employer’s Safety Practices?
When it comes to eye care, vision, and prevention of eye injuries and diseases, our team is here to help you keep your vision in great shape. Your eye doctor in Bronx is dedicated to helping you learn what dangers lurk at your business and where you can expect to find and avoid them. One of the best things you can do to prevent one of the 2,000 people who report eye injuries each day is to talk to your company’s safety manager or human resource manager. They might direct you to a manual or poster that features a few of the following tips:

  • Wear Safety Glasses. If you work with substances or materials that may become airborne and land in your eyes, wear your safety glasses. Make sure they fit and are in good condition.
  • Heed Caution Flags and Other Warnings. Your employer should clearly designate dangerous areas where objects are hanging from above or protruding from walls. 
  • Seek Out Clear Care Responses. Make sure your employer keeps the correct sterile eyewash in dangerous areas to ensure early care to prevent permanent eye damage.
