Lesson 1: Vision and Hearing
In the workplace, many workers think about accomplishing their job every day but do
not consider vision or hearing safety. The statistics of vision and hearing injuries that

to prevent work – related injuries to the eyes and to the ears. Work – related injuries
may be minor but they can also cause lifetime disabilities. It is for this reason that
this module provides necessary information on the prevention of injuries and protection
of people in the workplace.
