The OSHA  standards that recommend against contact lenses (Acrylonitrile,
Ethylene  oxide, Dibromochloropropane (DBCP), 4,4'-Methylenedianiline,
1,3-Butadiene,  and Methylene chloride) date from well before it was shown
that the  presence or absence of contacts made no significant different in
most  chemical exposure situations. So does the 1981 Prudent Practices.

I did a find search of the Ethylene Oxide standard and did not find  the 
reference to contact lenses.  Can you help me identify the paragraph  for the 
citation.  ... Jim Kaufman
