Workplace injuries: UV rays can cause eye damage

The sun is an essential element required for all life. However, excessive exposure to UV light can be harmful. In Oklahoma, workers might be aware of the potential workplace injuries of sunburn and skin cancer, but prolonged exposure could also compromise workers' immune systems and damage their eyes and vision. UV light can cause various eye diseases.

Concern over workplace injury-related amputations

According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, the number of occupation-related amputations gives rise to concern. A workplace injury that leads to an amputation can happen in the blink of an eye. The agency says that over 90% of amputations nationwide, including in Oklahoma, involve fingers. However, amputations of other body parts like hands, feet and toes are also cited in workers' compensation claims. Too many workers are unable to continue working in their chosen occupations after amputation injuries.
