Prof. Ferm,

I would be interested in hearing about any feedback that you get on this 
point.  We currently require safety glasses in our labs for the same 
reasons--students don't like goggles, but I use a pair of visor-gogs and 
like them.

We are considering returning to use of Visor-Gogs(r) for chemistry lab
students, as well as art studio activities.  Our reasoning is that
increased comfort will translate into increased compliance,  as well as
the idea that the less irritated the wearer's eyes/face are from the
goggles, the less likely one is to reach in to rub with a potentially
chemically-contaminated finger.


Please offer feedback, or other information, positive and negative, on
the use of Visor-Gogs(r) as PPE.
