Title: He May Get The Dirt Or Chip Out
From: Eye Accidents In Industries
Original caption: He may get the dirt or chip out but he also may start infection from his soiled hands, handkerchief, dirty match or toothpick. Then disease results and the eye may be lost.

Dust chips, etc. should be removed by the company doctor if there is one. If not your foreman should use only the first aid kit.

Wideawake employers provide proper aids. Wideawake employees use them.
