A tiered response should be considered as offenses mount:
1. verbal warning
2. formal warning with entry into the student's record or personnel file
3. forced absence from lab for x days (with pay, if employed)
4. forced absence from lab (without pay, if employed) for y days and, finally
5. expulsion or termination on the basis of stupidity

Subject: [DCHAS-L] Combating Food in student Research Laboratories
Hello All,
I was wondering if anyone could share and methods they currently use of have used in the past to combat and discourage the storage and consumption of food and drink in the laboratory.
Has anyone come across the following in a laboratory: Microwave / water cooler / beverage refrigerator? How did you rectify the situation?
What is an appropriate penalty for anyone that “consumes food or beverages in any area exposed to a toxic material” (29 CFR 1910.141(g)(2)).
