OH Ed, you are going to get such flack for that response that I need to weigh in right away to say that I agree with you.  I don't tell a students that there is no reason to wear safety glasses in the shop if they don't plan to cut any wood.  Who can predict what other people might be doing?  The machines are there. If you are in the shop, you have the glasses on. If you are in the printmaking acid room, you have the googles on.  Done.

And I also think that it is not up to us to debate about whether face shields are OK for splash protection or not.  Read the new standard with the nice set of letters that will be stamped on all eye wear starting next year that will tell you precisely what the wear is approved for and what it is not approved for.  It's over and done.  And you provide advice in opposition to the standard at your peril.

To All,

No one should ever enter an area where hazardous materials are used or stored unless they are trained, have authorization, and are wearing safety glasses or goggles, and any other appropriate PPE.
