Just be sure that any “sticker” you use is not visible to the public. You don’t want to announce to the “creeps, etc.” that there is a person working alone. When I was in grad school a fellow grad student was raped and killed while working alone in lab.
I have 2 questions for those working in academic laboratories.
1. Have you ever experienced any situations where an overnight reaction form
has been precious for the emergency response ?
2. Another common practice in academic research and even more at risk, is working alone in the laboratory.
Even if it is strongly discouraged, it is part of the academic culture. I am trying to implement a new system
with removable stickers to at least inform people outside the lab (security, etc…) that someone is running
experience alone in the lab. So I would like to receive some feedbacks, sharing experience on how
people manage this situation.
Thanks for any help on this.
Have a good day
