I would recommend that you check with the ACS "bible" for student labs, Safety in Academic Laboratories. There are 2 sections, one for students and one for faculty/administrators, and you can find them on the Committee on Chemical Safety website.
I am trying to get a policy in print for our Department about lab use by undergraduate research students after usual business hours. I would like to hear what your policies are! Please address:
- hours of access
- working "alone" at any time
- What about work that is all computer-related and not using anything "unsafe."
- anything else you can think of that is relevant to a student access policy.
Thanks so much for your help! I know my thoughts, but I need to answer the "what is everybody else doing?" question for my Dept. Chair. We want to make a "Good Practices" Policy.
