Case Study: In 2011, a 22 year-old drink cart coordinator in Washington state nearly lost her vision permanently when a piece of glass ruptured her right eye. The worker was kneeling to load an airplane drink cart when a wine bottle resting four to five feet above her fell and shattered, lodging pieces of glass in her eye. She was not wearing any kind of eye protection when the accident took place because her employers did not provide any.

The worker ended up going to the emergency room for surgery. Her injuries kept her off the job for a month. As a result of this accident, the worker says that her company now provides and requires workers to wear protection while loading carts and handling chemicals.
