Academia, small liberal arts private college, approximately 1200-1400
students in residence.
We provide spill kits in each lab with absorbent pads/pillows, kitty
litter, sand, baking soda, citric acid, mercury spill kit (for that random
thermometer you occasionally find), gloves, disposal bags, hand broom and
dust pan, a permanent marker and a spill kit usage laminated card. We
also have a first aid kit, broken glass box, and a long handled broom and
pan. Students provide their own goggles, we provide gloves and aprons.
Safety equipment includes fire extinguisher, safety shower, eyewash and in
some older labs a fire blanket. Oh, an all chemistry labs have hoods.
