The HIDDEN Cost of eye accidents is higher (Nov, 1946)

The HIDDEN Cost of eye accidents is higher

Bookkeeping records seldom show the true costs of eye accidents—merely compensation and medical expense. However, the “hidden” costs* (machinery and work damage, idle time and lowered worker morale, to name but a few) are estimated— by a recognized authority—to be four times the amount of the direct cost of eye accidents.

Why not let your nearest A-O Safety Representative show you how much an adequate eye-protection program can save for you.
