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)).
