The instructor should enforce a penalty on the laboratory grade. Safety is, after all, a component of everything we do in the lab. I'd set a policy of being warned once, and then docked a letter grade on the assignment that is being conducted that day - even if it's a multi day experiment.
If they have been trained and signed off on the training and warned once, then the rule must be enforced -so pick them up and throw in the garbage! Bet they will remember then.Michael A.

We are seeing a problem with students walking into the lab holding their water bottles and it is not practical for the instructor to stand at the door as they arrive because our labs run one right after the other and we rarely close the door. At the beginning of the term during the safety presentation they are told to put them away before entering the lab but they either forget or ignore it. We already have so many signs in our labs, hallways, etc that no one pays any attention to them so I'm reluctant to add another one. Could you share what you do at your institution?Debbie ReederChemistry Lab ManagerAnne Arundel Community College101 College ParkwayArnold, MD 21012410-777-2224
