Course Overview

Eye injuries are much more common than you might think. In fact, over 2,000 people per day sustain injuries to their eyes! Whether it originates from eyestrain or operating without the correct PPE, there are always preventative measures that you can take.

Your eyes are incredibly delicate and do not repair as easily as other areas of your body, such as the skin. Therefore, it’s absolutely vital that you know how to treat your eyes in the safest way possible. Our Eye Protection Training course was created to tackle the risks of eye damage and reduce the chances of serious vision-altering accidents.

Eye injuries are one of the most common non-fatal injuries in the workplace, and up to 90% of them could have been prevented by wearing the correct eye protection. Minimise your risks today by learning how to keep your eyesight safe, with our online Eye Protection Training course.

The course can be studied alongside a number of our construction and manufacturing courses, such as PPE Training, Abrasive Wheel Safety Training and many others.

Why is Eye Protection Training important?

It's important that you comply with the law, as well as understand the ways in which it affects you in the workplace.

Personal Protective Equipment at Work Regulations 1992

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is required for many job roles. PPE is used to reduce the chance of any accidents or incidents that occur to yourself, or somebody else. It is the responsibility of the employer to provide the PPE, free of charge. However, the employee is responsible for knowing when and how to use it.

Employers have duties concerning the provision and use of personal protective equipment (PPE) at work. PPE is equipment that will protect the user against health or safety risks at work. HSE

The Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974 (HASAWA) refers to the legislation that evaluates how safe a workplace is, and it sets the standard for the safety precautions that should be put in place. This ensures that the risk of accidents happening is reduced as much as possible.
