It seemed harmless enough. A sheriff's deputy from Birmingham, Ala., was pulling a nail with needle-nose pliers when the nail slipped. In a second, the pliers plunged into his eye, gashing his corne a, tearing most of his iris, and smashing his lens. The deputy's case is typical. He was not wearing protective eyewear.

6 keys to safe night driving - Night driving can be challenging and hazardous
Give me good weather, a full moon, and a clear road ahead. If you could order up these conditions, you would be pretty sure of a safe, after-dark trip.

Chainsaws no longer just for the brawny and the pros
The home-improvement industry is taking the once fearsome chain saw and redesigning it for weekenders and women.
New models weigh about 10 pounds, cost a couple hundred dollars, and are easy to start. With a little experience and effort, new users can cut up trees and branches that a storm dropped into their yard or across their driveway.
Before starting, users should invest in safety gear. With the increasing popularity of chainsaws, emergency rooms are seeing a significant increase in chainsaw injuries.
The left leg is one of the most frequently injured spots. Chaps are recommended for protection. Those infused with Kevlar can halt saw blades in less than a second.
Safety gear includes a helmet, goggles, gloves made with cut-retardant material, a heavy shirt, and hard-toed boots with nonskid soles.
