GPS challenge of the week…TAKE 10 SECONDS to Protect your EYES!  March is Workplace Eye Wellness Month!  Your eyes are very important to you, your family and your livelihood.

You should wear only ANSI-approved safety glasses, face shields or goggles to protect your eyes when welding, cutting and for protection from all types of flying particles.  Always replace poorly fitting or damaged safety glasses as soon as possible.  Workers needing corrective lenses must either wear ANSI-approved safety glasses with prescription lenses and frames or wear ANSI-approved glasses or googles designed to be worn over their regular prescription glasses.

If you experience or see a safety concern on your assignment, please contact our GPS Safety Hotline at 803-760-1441 or contact your local GPS office. If you are injured on your assignment, please call MEDCOR at 1-800-775-5866 then contact your local GPS office.

GPS where Safety is Everybody’s Job…My Job…Your Job!  The more often you TAKE 10 SECONDS to identify existing or potential hazards the better equipped you are to create a safer work environment.  Let’s TAKE 10 SECONDS!
