If you have decided to make a claim for an eye injury at work then the reason for your claim could be down to any one of a number of accidents possible in the workplace.
The nature of your eye injury at work largely depends on the type of job you do. Dusty working environments are one of the types of workplace where eye injuries are most common. Places where employees work with harmful or dangerous chemicals or with power tools also have an increased risk of eye injury.
Your employer should provide you with PPE (Personal Protective Equipment), for example, safety goggles. If they fail to do this and you have an injury to your eye, they would be responsible for your accident.
Very helpful, pleasant and highly recommendable. No improvement needed.
