Today in welding class one student was not wearing his glasses, no matter how many times, the teacher, other students, and I told him to put them on. Well, he ended up taking a piece of 7018 slag about 1/4" across in the eye. Wearing safety glasses is very important, as long as you take care of them and dont let them get scratched, you wont be able to tell you are even wearing them! Please, I don't want to read that a member got something stuck in their eye!
EDIT: The student who took the slag in the eye ended up being ok, but it obviously hurt more then I can imagine!
