[ RadSafe ] Unacceptable Reason For A Dose

While I agree that anyone who might need to work in a respirator should
be fit for one (including either the right kind of glasses or corrective
surgery), I think the bigger problem was them eating at their station.
Taking your mask all the way off and eating food that was exposed to the
contamination in the room seems like a bigger source than air that
sneaks past the earpieces of glasses.

I am sorry but this is inexcusable. You have to fit respirators, before
allowing someone into an airborne contamination area.
