No food and drink.  It's in the document I shared, in policy, on posters, on lab doors – if anyone's confused about the food and drink policy, they're completely clueless and shouldn't be allowed around sharp objects, let alone in lab.

Debbie,

 

I assume that PPE is the only exemption for designated laboratory “no chemicals” spaces and that you don't allow food or drink?

 

Regards,

Ben

Please don't drag us back into the contact lens debate!  Contact lenses are safe to wear in lab, making sure proper safety eyewear is also worn.  If you need references (going back a decade or more), check the archives.

 

Best,

Hi all-

 

  I want to thank you again for your help and response on the LAB PPE response to Yoga or Synthetic Pants and exposed ankles. We would like to make a major overhaul to the safety language in our department. I am reaching out to the group again for some additional help. If anybody is willing to share some proper language or examples of proper PPE rules for undergraduate college labs. I would really appreciate as we make some major changes to reflect these small details. Also does anybody know the exact language about contacts under safety glasses? Is is allowable or not? Thanks for all your help and guidance.

 

Thanks,

Aniello Tambasco
