I wrote an article for the Journal of Chemical Health and Safety that dealt with the issue of service dogs in the lab and referenced some academic institutions that have written policies.  It will be published, I think, in January, but I would be willing to share beforehand if anyone contacts me privately.

I am trying to make accommodations for a service dog in teaching labs at the university. The students are required to wear closed-toe shoes and safety glasses as a minimum. We have a policy for service animals on campus, however, it doesn't really have any safety measures for the animals when they are in labs. Does anyone know of ways to keep the animal safe or have any experience with this type of situation? 


Thanks for any help you are able to give.
