If you keep them, prepare to have them used as sinks down which all manner of solutions will be poured! “A minimum chance of contamination”! More like a Maximum chance.
We are in the process of building a new Lab and it is almost ready for occupation.
The Lab designer has put two drinking fountains in the Lab. I believe this is not allowed per OSHA’s Laboratory Standards, however, the discussion is that “there is minimum chance of chemical contamination” with these drinking fountains. I have requested the removal of these, but it would be costly at this point. I have two questions:
Are the drinking fountains allowed in the Lab area?
Is it OK to shut down the water source at this point and leave the fountains there?
I appreciate the expert opinions on this subject.
