EYE and EAR PROTECTION
- Each person should have his or her own pair of safety goggles,
which are suitable for the type of work anticipated. For example,
different goggles would be used in the welding shop that in a sculpting
studio, and in an area where acids are being used.
- Safety glasses must be worn at all times in all areas that are
designated as safety glass areas even if the student or faculty member
is not performing any contaminating activity. A designated safety
glasses area is an area where everyone wears safety glasses even if
nothing is happening in the room at that moment. OSHA frequently levies
fines when personnel are not wearing safety goggles in a designated
safety glass area or performing an eye threatening activity, such as
drilling, grinding, sawing, or splashes occuring from mixing dyes,
solvents, chemicals etc., even in a non-designated area. Faculty
members are expected to enforce this regulation.
