Deck, Anita; Roy, Ken
Technology and Engineering Teacher, v77 n3 p26-28 Nov 2017
When it comes to eye safety, there are some situations in which regular safety glasses will work adequately for the needs of the STEM education classroom or laboratory. However, there are certain instances in which safety goggles must be used for safer protection. Taking the time to analyze hazards and assess the risks prior to any activity in the STEM education classroom will ensure the selection of the proper eye protection. The recommendations suggested in this article are not intended to address all eyewear issues pertaining to safety glasses and safety goggles, but rather to raise STEM educator awareness and serve as a resource to locate further information.
