Drips can hurt.
Also it wouldn't hurt to find some way of covering or protecting your throat.

I've seen guys cut the gauntlet off an old TIG glove and pop-rivet it onto the bottom section of their welding hood to protect their necks when they are in tight quarters, lying on their backs and moving out of the way of a falling drip is not an option. As a beginner you might want to consider that option even if you can move out of the way.
