Jim, Please tell us what kind of injury such an exposure could cause. I'm recommending switching form various acid etching baths to copper sulfate baths which will etch cheater zinc plates so ventilation is not so crucial. If there is a down side, I need to know.

I was an expert witness in a case where exposure to copper sulfate from a school science experiment resulted in very serious injuries to a child.

It's overkill to assure the parents don't sue the school district and to also show the emergency response teams are necessary.
