Chicago-As part of Workplace Eye Wellness Month, Prevent Blindness America (PBA) is providing employers with two programs to help protect their employees’ vision: the Eye2Eye initiative and the Healthy Eyes Educational Series.
The Eye2Eye initiative was launched in partnership with Uvex, a manufacturer of industrial eye and face protection products. The program features a peer-based, interactive curriculum and community-oriented forum enabling end-users to share their best practices.
Upon completion of the multimedia training program, employee representatives become certified Eye2Eye “safety ambassadors,” a role designed to bridge the gap between safety managers and employees. Safety ambassadors gain access to the program’s online training modules and receive product samples and promotional prizes provided by Uvex. For more information, visit www.eye2eyeprogram.com.
The Healthy Eyes Educational Series is designed to provide lunch-and-learn presentations in an office setting. Those interested may download free modules to conduct formal presentations or informal one-on-one sessions. Each module includes a presentation guide and corresponding PowerPoint presentation. Topics include adult eye disorders, eye anatomy, healthy living, low vision, and eye safety. For more information, visit www.preventblindness.org/healthy-eyes-education-series.
