Eye damage is most often caused by foreign material striking the eye: splinters, shards of wood or glass, grit or dust, pieces of metal, even flying nails.
Construction workers can also be exposed to toxic chemicals used on the job site and with that in mind, eye protection should be used and eye washing stations should be available on-site.

Establishing Responsibility for Eye Trauma on the Job Site
