As a very small adult, I had to hunt to find small splash guard safety goggles, since adult sized ones cannot seal to my small face. This is also a problem with trying to get goggles the right size for children. One day I got an ad flyer from Flinn and found out that they do carry and sell child sized goggles, even though they generally aren't listed in their catalog. I used to buy two dozen at a time, since even some adults (my smaller college students, and me) need small goggles. I would trade the students for the adult sized pair they got at the bookstore, and give them a small pair instead. After all, what good is a splash guard goggle that doesn't fit to the face of the wearer?

Flinn and Carolina Biological are 2 suppliers that come to mind.
Spill kits (make sure you have non organic absorbent if nitric is used)
Broken glass containers
Acid storage composite cabinets
While not specifically safety equipment these are invaluable,
Ecofunnels - CPLabSafety - https://www.calpaclab.com/about-the-eco-funnel/
Spill trays - Scientific Plastics - These are virtually indestructible and save clean up time. They act as secondary containment and segregation on shelves. You can order direct from them in 100s of sizes or some sizes available through VWR. http://www.scientificplastics.com/
Isolation Compartments - These are great to isolate in areas with limited space - https://scimatco.com/collections/accessories

Do you know of a supplier for small eyewash stations etc, anything they might need for this type ofsetting? Thanks for any advice!"
How about some suppliers who address this market and alsosuggestions for safety equipment, not just PPE, that shouldbe in the classroom.
