While it probably is not required, you surely will not be penalized if you decide, as a University, to have a rule such as this. It would just need to be in your policies, and then you would have to have a way to monitor such actions. If people in your art department are asking for this, it might not be a bad thing to do, as they would take ownership and supposedly help monitor the situation. However, if it??s just one faculty member (and others are opposed), it could lead to issues/problems that are easier to avoid by not doing this (since it??s not required).

Good luck

The question is should the university make safety glasses mandatory for students while working in the studio. This studio is setup for making ceramics and pottery. I need help in this matter.
