Tom DeGroot received 2008 GAP Award funding for prescription safety goggles and a supplied air respirator. Using a special compressor, it delivers outside ambient air via a hose to a hood worn by the worker. Tom has worked with polyester resin for the past four years and, in order to continue his work with the medium had to obtain a breathing apparatus so he would not develop sensitivity to the resin fumes. Tom won a 2008 PONCHO Artistic Merit Award.
