Maybe DCHAS, in the interest of improving lab safety, should write to OSHA & ask them to redo the fact sheets.

I was just checking out the new OSHA fact sheets on lab safety and noticed that they have photos with people not wearing proper PPE!  For example, for the cryogens and dry ice fact sheet ( they show a person with no eye/face protection even though the fact sheet says:
Always use a face shield in conjunction with safety glasses or goggles.
You would think they wouldn't make that mistake......
