The video has good intentions but sends a bad message in that safety glasses with side shields would offer adequate splash protection. I would hope that anyone that works in a lab knows that splash goggles are the appropriate eye protection and safety glasses are useless in most cases of chemical splashes.

First: I really like this video especially for more senior students who tend to work on projects with less supervision. However, is anyone else troubled by the goggles? Or am I missing something?

Here is a new safety video from UCSD called Splash Zone. It was produced by Dr. Haim Weizman.
