Eye protection would have prevented injuries

A company has settled out of court with an engineer who was nearly blinded in a workplace accident.

The drainage worker was carrying out a repair when a hose flew out of control and hit him in the face, the News reports. It caused a deep wound below his right eye that required surgery and has left him with blurred vision.

He took his employer to court because they had failed to provide him with eye protection that would have prevented him from getting hurt.

The injured man hopes that his plight will improve safety for others.

"I hope employers sit up and listen to my story and do everything they can to keep their workers safe so no-one else has to suffer," he told the News.

His lawyer reiterated that message.

"It's important employers take note of this case and do all they can to protect their workers by providing basic health and safety equipment," the paper reports.
