Subject: [DCHAS-L] Looking for REALLY Anti-fog Chemical Splash Goggles
I have a researcher wants to work with one of the nastier acute toxins and is pushing back against wearing safety goggles (our requirement when working with acute toxins, among others) because "within 5 minutes of wearing them, they fog up". We are currently using the "Revolution" goggle with Visiclear antifog coating (from Jackson Safety)...I haven't heard anyone else complain, but maybe this researcher has a really high body temperature normally, or just sweats a lot, who knows?
If you can recommend a different goggle--and I'd be willing to pay $25-40 for a pair if they WOULD NOT FOG--I would be very interested. I am thinking that facilities handling Select Agents and/or manufacturing facilities handling acute toxins have people in these for a good couple of hours at a time. I don't need to know what your 'nasty' is--but I am very interested in hearing from anyone at commercial facilities as well as academic.
Many thanks to all-
