Subject: Re: Visor-gogs
Our school chemistry department has stopped use of the Visor-Gogs
because of the gap between the side of the face and the goggle. I
personally used them for years, but when we hired our Laboratory Coordinato
r/Chemical Hygiene Officer a few years ago, we made the decision that
Visor-Gogs weren't safe.
I realize that compliance can be difficult. But if the
instructor uses them, and requires that the students do, there should not
be much of a problem.

We are considering returning to use of Visor-Gogs=AE
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=AE as PPE.
