Subject: 6 re: Long Hair Lab Safety
From: Kennedy, Sheila 

Good catch, but I suggest we teach: 

All female worker with long hair MUST tie up their hair on top. away from
flames & moving (rotating?) equipment.

Gender has nothing to do with long hair.  It may be better stated that all
workers with long hair.

I entirely agree with your post re long hair in the lab. Just a minor
