OSHA Watch Question of the Month - March/April 2005

March/April Question of the Month: How should eye goggles be disinfected?

Answer: Without specific manufacturer's instructions, don utility gloves and clean with a hospital-level disinfectant. Another way to clean blood and potentially infectious fluids off of reusable protective equipment is to make a 10% solution of household bleach and soak the item in it for 10 minutes. Then rinse with tap water and air dry.
