Workplace Eye Wellness Month
ISPB and PBIL have declared March as Workplace Eye Wellness Month in an effort to help keep eyes healthy, safe and protected on the job. Whether a job is on an industrial or construction site, or in an office setting, protecting vision should always be a priority.
To help employers educate workers on eye protection and safety, we offer a Workplace Safety module as part of a free program, the Healthy Eyes Educational Series. The module includes a Presentation Guide and corresponding PowerPoint slides. We also offer a variety of workplace eye safety fact sheets and shareable social media graphics.
