Subject: [DCHAS-L] Glassware injury lesson learned report?
Does anyone have a relatively detailed favorite Lessons Learned report for a situation which involves significant cuts from broken glassware in a lab that doesn‰??t involve over-pressurization of the vessel? I‰??m doing a training next week for undergraduate students and I‰??d like to make the point that it‰??s not always the chemistry that creates the problem. The example I have in mind could involve hot glassware that breaks when someone tries to pick it up and drops it, but similar events would be helpful as well.
Thanks for any assistance with this.
