Eye safety at work banner

Eye injuries in the workplace are surprisingly common: every day, 700 Canadian workers sustain eye injuries on the job, often resulting in lost time and, in some cases, either temporary or permanent vision loss. This figure is sobering given that the majority of eye injuries are preventable.

In this section you can learn about safety eyewear for your workplace, the rights and responsibilities of both employees and employers in matters of workplace eye safety, and about CNIB’s Industrial Eye Safety Workshops, which are designed to educate employees on the importance of protecting their eyes in the workplace.​​​​
