With regard to the gap, isn’t there often a gap with goggles, also? One size doesn’t really fit all. Jim, I seem to remember that a vid eo that you showed at a safety seminar several years ago showed better protect ion with something like visogogs than some goggles. Am I remembering correctly ?
Our school che mistry 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, bu t when we hired our Laboratory Coordinator/Chemical Hygiene Officer a few yea rs ago, we made the decision that Visor-Gogs weren't safe. p>
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® for chemistry lab students, as well as art studio activities. Our reasoni ng is that increased comfort will translate into increased compliance, a s well as the idea that the less irritated the wearer's eyes/face are from th e 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® as PPE.
