Environmental Health and Safety conducted an Eye Protection Initiative designed to call attention to eye safety and the importance of proper use of personal protective equipment (PPE), specifically eyewear. Over the last two months, EHS held give-away sessions at Lewis Thomas Laboratory, Schultz Laboratory, Frick Chemistry Laboratory, Jadwin Hall, and the Engineering Quadrangle; approximately 730 faculty, staff and students participated. Each participant had the opportunity to choose one pair of safety glasses from four models including one that is worn over prescription eyeglasses. Participants could also choose from two models of safety goggles designed to protect users from splashes that occur when working with larger volumes of liquid.
Each participant had the opportunity to enter a drawing to win a FitBit® fitness tracker by completing a quiz. The four winners (pictured below) include Francine Camacho from Molecular Biology, Elizabeth Seibel from Chemistry, and Kristin Adolfsen and Shirley Yang, both from the School of Engineering and Applied Science.
