Are you doing all you can to reduce the high costs of eye injuries in the workplace?

​Get the facts about eye injuries

It's estimated that more than 720,000 Canadians experience an eye injury requiring medical attention each year. Eye injuries can cause serious vision loss or even blindness and are one of the most frequently treated accidents in hospital and emergency rooms. 

Eye injuries cost your organization

​Lost time, competitiveness, reputation, productivity, profitability and employee morale are all affected. Most workplace eye injuries are preventable.

CNIB’s Industrial Eye Safety Program is aimed at educating organizations and their workers about eye safety in the workplace, building a culture of safety and reducing the associated costs of workplace eye injury. Your people are your best asset. CNIB can help protect your investment.

Our workshop is like nothing your organization has seen before. Your employees will be motivated, captivated and excited by this unique experience. We can also customize a program that will benefit your organization well into the future.

While many people think eye injuries only happen in industrial settings – where machines or chemicals are involved – in reality, more than two thirds of eye injuries occur outside of a work setting.​
