Not only do they neglect eye protection on the cryogen fact sheet, they neglect eye protection on the fume hood one, too!  And on the chemical labeling and transfer fact sheet, the person is wearing goggles but no gloves!

Argh!  I cant use these  Id be bbqd and rightfully so.

FYI - Here's the compilation of links for OSHA's laboratory-related information - more fact sheets as well as most of everything else.

Spoiler alert:  Same issue as the cryogen sheet.

Great  I will add this one to my poster for the spring.  Appreciate the help!!

Also  if you want some fun  look at the Solandra publicity shots with Obama  the workers are in hard hats, safety glasses, gloves, and tyvex suits.  He is in a suit  thats it.

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 (http://www.osha.gov/Publications/laboratory/OSHAquickfacts-lab-safety-cryogens-dryice.pdf) 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......
