Hi Phil. We have stools in many of our labs, and they have not caused a problem. You may want to look into a stool with a back, possible one that swivels. Don't let them give you one with casters.

Take care,

We have a chemistry student this quarter who is about 4 feet tall and is concerned that her height places her face at an unsafe distance from the chemicals.  She has suggested that she use a stool in the lab, which seems to me like a reasonable solution.  However, others have raised a concern about falling and tripping over the stool. 


I was hoping someone on the list might have had a similar experience and would be willing to share any lessons learned.
