Look for a 3 step ladder with "weight-activated retractable casters with protective rubber bumpers", something like the Cramer 1033-19 Stop-Step Ladder, 3 Steps with Double Handrail 27-inch High Top Step
Should be OK with ADA, and the lab maintenance people can use it after hours to work on hoods and change light bulbs....
If you want a less costly , 2 step ladder that folds up after hours, check your home building depot store, etc.

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.
