Industrial Workers Will Lose the Sight of One or Both Eyes TODAY
AN ALARMING COST TO INDUSTRY Yet Almost Wholly PREVENTARLE

Of the 17 serious eye accidents in industry that will happen in the next 24 hours, 16 could be prevented now by use of safety goggles. Eye accidents are estimated to cost industry $5 per shop worker per year— an alarmingly high figure. Yet, according to the Society for the Prevention of Blindness, 98% of eye accidents can be prevented by the use of safety goggles —at an average cost of only $1.50 a pair. Are you overlooking this opportunity to effect a substantial cost reduction? If so, we suggest you get in touch with your nearest AO Safety Representative for advice and help in establishing an adequate eye-protection program in your plant.
