Vision@WORK+Play - Festive Cheer

Festive Cheer

It’s December already and the festive season is upon us. For many of us, this means end of year parties, lots of food, drink and yes – bubbly.

We’ve all been told not to shake a bottle of sparkling wine and then point it at someone. Is it just an urban myth? Or can champagne corks actually injure?


WORK: glasses

Good vision at work: Don’t assume others see the same way you do

A colleague recounted this story to me last week:
I was onsite talking to a warehouse manager. They had an employee who frequently bumped into objects while driving a forklift.
“We can’t work it out” the manager confessed. “None of the other drivers have trouble with the forklifts.”
“Has he had his eyes tested?” my colleague asked.
“Hmm. We hadn’t thought about that. We thought it was an engineering issue. Great idea. I’ll follow it up. Thanks!”
