How Scotchgard™ Anti-Fog Coating can improve worker health and safety

November 21, 2017

Workplace eye injuries can affect Canadian workers of all ages in nearly every industry.

In Canada, 200 work-related eye injuries occur each day. These types of injuries can cause temporary or permanent vision loss and result in lost days at work, with 5% of eye injuries interfering with work on a short or long-term basis. In Ontario alone, there were 1,124 lost time claims in 2015 due to eye-related workplace incidents.

Eye-related workplace injuries often occur when a worker isn’t wearing their safety glasses properly or when they aren’t worn at all. Fogged eyewear is considered one of the most significant factors in noncompliance among workers and is a large contributor to these numbers. When safety glasses fog, workers are more likely to remove them, putting themselves at a higher risk for injury.
