Good morning John,

It is interesting to me that the two safety professionals from UCLA (me the former ACHO and Chris Kolodziej the current CHO) looked up the source of the photo rather than assume. At UCLA we would do monthly PPE inspections. We were trained to ask questions first and to treat those inspections as a learning opportunity for the researcher and ourselves. I think this is an important lesson for safety professionals that context is important (as Margaret stated) and we can lose credibility with our researchers by jumping to conclusions.
