We have a student recently diagnosed with epilepsy. She will be researching with one of our PI's this summer. If you have some experience with this scenario and have some protocols in place for epilepsy and safety in the lab, I sure would appreciate your thoughts.
We will of course, be
- enforcing the 'don't work alone' policy, as per usual
- requiring the use of carts instead of hand-held secondary containers
- working up a first aid training and protocol for her lab and floor mates
Useful things to consider would be very much appreciated!
