As a safety professional I am concerned that this interest was not displayed during the appropriate times. The ASSE, American Society of Safety Engineers closely works with ANSI and OSHA during the development phases of new rules and codes. They both usually allow due notice and ample time to respond to issues. Where was this organiztion then??? There is certainly a huge difference of interests between this chemical society and the ASSE. It is really amazing that a comment about someones lack of professional experitise about a safety issue could elicite so many responses that the ansi standard already covers. In fact the ASSE held an open response forum on this issue last year prior to its implementation. Are these responses genuine or in fact a response to a legitimate challenge. This is also the last time I will respond or play part in this network. There is a definite gap between what this organizations interests are and the Safety field. For those who are so educated, the responses are defensive and childish. When I responded last year about the new eyewear standard implementation, a few Good Old Chemical Group Boys and Girls mocked my comments even though I was right on the standard implementation dates. I am glad I will not be part of this ego network. I will now return to important safety issues somewhere else. Oh by the way please keep up to date on the standards, proposed changes, and implementation of in the future. I'm outa here!!!!
