Subject: Re: Eye protection in chemistry labs


My sentiments exactly.  I used to write letters and send e-mails, but I just got tired of doing it.  Some kind of organized approach seems in order. You've got my vote.

So, finally, to my questions.
What the heck is going on?  If goggles are the standard level of eye protection, why do we still see so many images of chemists wearing safety glasses?
