Subject: Re: Photographing non-compliance

< div style='font-family: Times New Roman; font-size: 12pt; color: #000000' >I'm not sure there's much of a difference in whether documentation of non- compliance exists as photographs or written descriptions.  I think the implications are the same.  As others have noted, photos are a great tool for communicating what you are trying to get across, and I think they have value in this context.

As an aside, one thing I've learned is t hat it's a bad idea to use photos of "noncompliance" as examples in lab saf ety  training if the source lab is recognizable in the photo.  Fo lks don't like to have their spaces serve as a warning to others.
