Health Education

Each vision screening technician should use available resources to develop health education talks and toolbox talks on vision protection and visual health in the workplace. Health education should be industry-specific and suitable for the level of the worker. When there are language barriers the content needs to be graphic for it to be understood.

The health education should be done:

As part of the induction programme
Whenever there are eye hazards in the workplace or incidents in the workplace involving eyes
As regular toolbox talks

This is over and above the formal training that was discussed above.
