Subject: RE: [DCHAS-L] cell phones in labs

I would base my decision more so on the chemical hygiene aspects.  We
require that phones be present in laboratories for emergency response
purposes.  These can be cell phones in certain situations, but in most,
it's not necessary. Seeing someone reach into their pocket with gloved
hands to pick up the phone would be a habit I would take issue with.
