201. Accidents in the workplace. (Abstract)

Accidents in the workplace. A prospective survey of patients attending the central Accident and Emergency Department and Eye Casualty Department in Aberdeen was made to determine the contribution of accidents at work to the workload of the departments and to estimate risks of injury in different industrial sectors. Work-related injuries accounted for 16.5 per cent of new patients attending the general accident department and 21.7 per cent of those attending eye casualty. Analysis by industrial (...) sector led to estimates that almost one in 10 workers employed in manufacturing industries and in agriculture/forestry/fishing will attend casualty in the course of a year for a work-related injury. The relatively low-risk service sector, because of the large numbers of people employed, contributed the greatest number of individuals with work-related injuries. Two industries had very high rates of specific and preventable injuries--food and fish processing with an estimated 17 knife lacerations per

Diagnosis may not be possible until this subsides. Penetrating ocular injuries Penetrating wounds, although rare, may be dramatic in presentation. The front of the eye (anterior chamber) may be flat in appearance; small bubbles may be present in the anterior chamber and the pupil may be irregular and nonreactive. The iris in severe cases may extrude from the wound (Figure 1). Although

203. Gender differences in etiology and outcome of open globe injuries. (Abstract)

%). Projectile objects accounted for the majority of open globe injuries in men (54.9%) and were an infrequent cause in women (4.3%). Nearly one-third (31.8%) of the projectile injuries in men were work-related, and 19.7% occurred during home improvement projects. Compared with men, falls were more frequently responsible for globe injuries in women (55.3% versus 8.1%). Injuries limited to the cornea were more common in men than women (46.2% versus 23.4%), while more posterior globe injuries were more common (...) Gender differences in etiology and outcome of open globe injuries. Patterns of injury and outcomes after multi-system trauma differ between men and women. Few data exist regarding the epidemiology of gender differences in severe eye trauma. We hypothesized that the incidence and patterns of open globe injuries might differ between men and women.Charts of 220 patients with open globe injuries presenting to the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary during a three-year period were retrospectively

of these exposures. Construction is dangerous work and these results add to the documentation of the need for additional measures to prevent work related injuries among all workers-teens and adults-in this industry. (...) were used to summarize and compare the injury experience of teens with those of adult construction workers.Teens had proportionately more injuries to the eye and foot and fewer injuries to the back than adults. They had more cuts and scratches and fewer sprains and strains. They also had proportionately fewer injuries from falls from elevations and overexertion, injuries that account for a significant cost burden in construction. Consistent with these findings, teens had significantly fewer

injuries resulting from nail-gun injuries.This is an institutional review board-approved retrospective chart review of 24 patients presenting to the Medical University of South Carolina after sustaining eye injuries secondary to the use of nail-guns. The records of 178 patients with penetrating eye injuries treated between July 1996 and June 2006 were reviewed. Twenty-four patients (14%) had open globe injuries related to nail-guns. Demographic data, ocular examination findings, and visual outcomes (...) were recorded.Of the 24 cases identified, 17 were work-related; this represented approximately 71% of patients. All were men with an average age of 29.4 years. Fifty-eight percent of the patients were non-English speaking. There was no record of any patient wearing safety glasses at the time of injury. The visual acuity at presentation ranged from 20/20 to hand motion or worse. Half (50%) of these patients had a presenting visual acuity of hand motion or worse. At last examination, 38% (nine

207. A case-control study of eye injuries in the workplace in Hong Kong. (Abstract)

A case-control study of eye injuries in the workplace in Hong Kong. Eye injury in the workplace is common worldwide. This study proposed to explore both risk and preventive factors re eye injuries in Hong Kong.Case-control study.A total of 239 work-related eye injury patients, and 253 subjects without a history of any eye injury as controls.Patients with all incident cases of work-related eye injuries attending the ophthalmology clinics of 3 major public hospitals in Hong Kong during the first (...) 3 months of 2000 were invited to participate. Controls were selected from the general population and were frequency matched to patients based on gender. Patients were interviewed face-to-face by trained interviewers in the ophthalmology clinics, using a structured questionnaire. Telephone interviews were used for controls.Risk and protective factors associated with eye injuries.Among eye injury cases, 158 patients (66.1%) reported having incurred 1 episode of eye injury during employment, 49
