Subject: Reporter looking for info on lab hazards
Dear DCHAS list members,

I am a freelance reporter working on a story about lab safety for Nature
Jobs (

My article is about the hazards that might not be obvious to the average lab
worker. Scientists know, or course, that needles are sharp and radiation is
not good for you--but other dangers might not be at the top of one's mind.
For example, animal researchers may be surprised when they develop an
allergy to their research subjects. I am interested in other lab-based
allergies and chemical sensitivities as well, and the potential dangers of
working with new kinds of chemicals.

I am writing to ask if you have any anecdotes or stories related to these
kinds of hazards that might not be on a lab worker's radar that you would
share with me. You can contact me at adance**At_Symbol_Here**

Thank you
