> In my humble opinion, biology is a special case of chemistry. Why should safety training be any less?

That question needs to be answered by biology faculty who allot training opportunities for their students, but chemical safety information is competing with an extra layer of BSL information for both time and memory space of the students. So I need to make some choices about the differences between chem lab safety and bio lab safety training, given the same time for both.
