RE: [Histonet] Eye Protection Question

From:"Darren James"

I agree totally with Joe's point about flushing your eyewash stations
regularly. These are often forgotten about and can become incredibly
contaminated over a very short period. We had micro prepare some plates on
the water in the eyewash stations and there were some fairly pathogenic
species present.

we have full-face safety shields as well as surgical masks with an attached
eye shield. We wear either when changing the staining machines and tissue
processors. When I gross, I wear my eyeglasses that are classified as safety
wear. We have never had an incident, but we flush our eyewash stations
weekly because you never know what will happen.

Good Morning!

What kind of eye protection are technicians required to  wear in the
laboratory during grossing, sectioning, processor maintenance, etc.?

Thanks and have a great day.
