No, not here. We don't wear anything at all. We have excellent air flow, and we wear the badges that test for exposure to xylene and formalin annually which I think is a CAP requirement. Our results have been better than acceptable every year.

I need some help from all of you out there in histoland.

How many of you wear respirators during your entire 8 hour work day for routine histology?  If you don't wear a respirator do you wear any type of mask or shield at all for routine histology?

Also if any of you have any histology safety procedures or information that you would be willing to share with me I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks in advance for all of your help, Amy
