I don’t think those who have lamented the fact that “chemistry 221; has been prominently included in the reports of a shop accident are implyin g that we aren’t responsible for safety in all areas. They’ re just saying “Here we go again; chemistry gets the bad rap.” Wh en Morton advertises their Solar Salt as having “no chemicals̶ 1;, C&EN Nov,2010, you know there’s a problem and being sensitive abo ut it is understandable. The other side of this is that with the emphasi s in the headline is on Chemistry, many Physics & Astronomy professors and t hose responsible for mechanical safety may have just ignored it. I know I passed it on to our Physics faculty because I didn’t know if theyR 17;d hear about it otherwise.

When I was in school I had the lathe, drill press and other machine shop tools i n my laboratory along with all of the traditional chemistry lab equipment. I fail to see the difference he re. Whether you call this a lab or a machine shop it was a part of here "Chemistry Lab" environment an d the distinction is surely irrelevant to her friends and family.
