Although Bill's views may sound rather prima donna-ish to some, I must support him.
Safety procedures and practices have become rather petty, tedious, and in my view, sometimes more dangerous than the perceived danger designed for.
Goggles prevent you seeing well - dangerous.
Feather blade holders prevent you sensing where the blade is - dangerous.
Safety hoods/cabinets prevent you seeing or doing anything in other than a clumsy way - dangerous, and so on.
Let sense rule over nonsense.

NB - this is NOT in any way anti-safety.

As a Pathologist and Physician, I try to never let regulations get in 
the way of my caring for patients. With 12 years of intensive 
education after high school and several decades of experience I 
claim, nay, demand the right to decide how to behave in a clinical 
setting for myself without interference of bureaucrats or
