I’m sor ry for being late on this; I’m reading old SAFETY & DCHAS-L mail today.
We just had this situation in our Teaching Labs – stu dent doing well in all respects except covering the toe that protruded from the orthopedic boot she needed. I purchased ballet slippers for her, which provided a thin layer of leather over the toes, giving her cut resistance and some splash protection without adding a lot of bulk. Sizing took some g uesswork, but the cost was less than $15.

We have a gr aduate student in our Chemistry Department who broke her foot and is now we aring a boot that has open toes for the next 6-8 weeks (no crutches). Has anybody come up against this situation before and do you know of any p rotective devices that can be worn and still allow the student to work in t he lab while meeting the “no open-toed shoes in lab” requiremen ts? Thanks for your help.
