Neenah, WI (PRWEB) March 07, 2017
TIDI Products, LLC, a leading manufacturer of clinically differentiated, single-use, infection prevention products, today announced its participation in March 2017 Workplace Eye Wellness Month. TIDI Products will support eye wellness advancement efforts by offering two unique webinars, designed to inform healthcare staff and infection prevention managers about eye infection risk in healthcare environments.
According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, each day, nearly 2,000 people injure their eyes while working; one third of these workplace eye injuries are severe enough to require hospital emergency room treatment, and almost three out of five of these injuries, including abrasions, splashes, and impacts, result from a lack of appropriate eye protection. To combat these trends in healthcare environments, TIDI Products has designed two educational webinars.
On March 21, 2017, Melanie Burton, RN, CNOR, BSN, and Nurse Educator, will review eye related infection risks and advanced protection protocols, covering relevant standards, current research, clinical risk reduction, and best practice process implementation. Eligible participants can earn one contact hour. On March 29, 2017, Dr. Amber Hogan Mitchell, President & Executive Director of the International Safety Center, and Victor R. Lange, Director of Infection Prevention, Alta Hospital Systems, Los Angeles, will discuss new research and recommendations around eye-infection risk reduction. For more details and to register for either webinar, please visit http://www.TIDIProducts.com/eyewellness.
TIDI Products President and Chief Executive Officer Kevin McNamara said, “TIDI Products is honored to participate in Workplace Eye Wellness Month. It is our vision to protect vision in healthcare environments.” More information about TIDI Products is at http://www.TIDIProducts.com.
