Ironworkers have one of the most dangerous jobs on the planet. So what's the big deal about a little pair of safety glasses? Turns out, a lot.
Until recently, eye injuries were the most common type of workers' comp claim at Fought & Company and REFA Erection, sister companies that manufacture some of the biggest, baddest steel-frame structures in the Northwest. Investing in better safety glasses helped bring eye injuries down from roughly two a month to one a year.
It's a simple change, really. But one with eye-opening results.
