two different lab techs here got various
fingers stitched after dropping volumetric flasks in sink, then reaching
too late to try to catch them...it has helped that we put teflon mesh in
the sink bottoms since then

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.
