Has anyone ever had an eye injury? Each day about 2000 U.S. workers have a job-related eye injury that requires medical treatment (NIOSH National Institute for Ocupational Safety and Health). Hi-Tech Optical, Inc knows exactly the costs of eye injuries to companies. Let us help you reduce those costs by providing prescription safety eyewear to your employees at no cost to you! Our exclusive Safety Eyeglass Eligibility System (SEES) is a program that can be customized to your individual safety needs. One Midwest Automotive Manufacturer saved over $700,000 in prescription safety eyewear with our SEES System. It’s not only a benefit to your company, but helps your employees ‘SEE’ why safety is so important.

I should apologize for my first post. I really am here to learn about the world of woodworking. The company I work for does sell safety eyewear, so I am learning about different industries so I know how to better market to them. I love to research statistics about eye injuries because it gives me a better idea of who really needs safety eyewear. I found this stat the other day and that’s what made me think of joining LumberJocks. “According to the BLS however, they claim that 40% of all eye related injuries tend to happen among the craft workers such as mechanics, carpenters & machinists.”

If anyone has any tips or suggestions on how to approach marketing to this type of work, (obviously not by potsing advertisments like my first post!) I’d love to hear it.

Hey Stephanie. Woodworkers are a pretty warm bunch. Most of them will help you move a fridge up 10 flights of stairs at 2am. They may not like it, but they’ll help if you ask. They’ll help if you ask in your first post. There is only one thing that gets them in a knot, and that’s being sold something in someone’s first post. Most woodworkers are safety fanatics. Especially the ones walking around with 8 fingers. Hang around, get to know the group. If you have a product that is useful to woodworkers en mass, then sponsor a challenge at lumber jocks…I spent 10 years in television advertising and the best quote came from a marketing VP from Coca Cola. His comments were in reference to end isle displays at the supermarket. He said, “You’ll sell more product if it’s everywhere people look, then you will shoving it down their throats when they come in the door.”

Actually Stephanie, I use a full face shield because I wear bifocals and want to keep my face pretty.
