…and holding an unlabeled container. The picture isn’t so very wrong, but adds nothing to the topic at hand.

On the chemical labeling and transfer fact sheet, the person is wearing goggles but no gloves.  Grr.

I did. Did you also find issues on the lab container labeling fact sheet?

FYI - Here's the compilation of links for OSHA's laboratory-related information - more fact sheets as well as most of everything else.

Spoiler alert:  Same issue as the cryogen sheet.

Perhaps this is a test by OSHA. ?
Maybe we’re supposed to use these fact sheets with our clients and ask, what’s missing here?

Great – I will add this one to my poster for the spring.  Appreciate the help!!

Also – if you want some fun – look at the Solandra publicity shots with Obama – the workers are in hard hats, safety glasses, gloves, and tyvex suits.  He is in a suit – that’s it.

I was just checking out the new OSHA fact sheets on lab safety and noticed that they have photos with people not wearing proper PPE!  For example, for the cryogens and dry ice fact sheet (http://www.osha.gov/Publications/laboratory/OSHAquickfacts-lab-safety-cryogens-dryice.pdf) they show a person with no eye/face protection even though the fact sheet says:


Always use a face shield in conjunction with safety glasses or goggles.


You would think they wouldn't make that mistake......
