Issues I observed in photos include: Lab clutter, improper use of electrical and extension cords, unlabeled reagent containers, tripping hazards, improper clothing, food and beverage in the lab.
The people taking the photos should follow the rules for all occupants of the lab.
Someone (e.g., safety officer and lab manager) should accompany the photographer during these sessions.
Have any of you ever put together "photo safety tips"? Our communication office has taken some publicity type photos and they don't always show the best lab safety practices. I've been asked to put together a guideline for them to use during these photo sessions in labs and non-lab areas on campus.
I know there's always feedback on other photos/video that make this list - mostly about PPE. I thought an easy to follow guide might help the photographer.
