What is even more obviously lacking is that the P.I. must be charged with taking ownership of the problem.  That would mean ensuring the people working in his/her lab are actually doing the required things stated clearly in the facility safety manuals.   That part is absent in every one of these incidents.

To All,
What is obviously lacking, in addition to effective communication, is common sense. A point I make in safety training is: "Careful consideration must be given to every operation where the risk of injury may occur. Always, education, information, and common sense should dictate the consequentially proper procedures", (paraphrased from Jay A. Young).
