Subject: Re: [DCHAS-L] Eye protection in chemistry labs

I worked with Concentrated Acids for six months.  I wore a variety of goggles and glasses.  The comfort of safety glasses is not enough to stop my thoughts of, what if acid were to splash onto my face.  The result, Post Traumatic Stress.  I highly disliked the days that I was not protected well enough.


I only felt safe wearing a goggle that fully sealed around my eyes.  After the day was over I would go home feeling that my job was a good job.
