Eye Protection in the Lab-ALL THE TIME

Appropriate eye protection is required in all laboratories here at Carnegie Mellon.  We have noticed both in our inspections and in other laboratory visits, that we are seeing more violations of this requirement than in the past.  Frequently, when lab personnel see us coming, they suddenly locate their safety glasses or goggles and put them on, thinking we haven’t noticed.  

Chemical and related lab hazards are problems regardless of whether someone from EH&S is in the area—PLEASE remember to wear proper eye protection at all times when working in the laboratory!
