Does anyone have any insight into regulating the use of headphones while working in the lab? Are there any official regulations, or do universities have to develop their own policy for headphone use? A faculty member reached out to our department concerned how students become “plugged in” and distracted from their surroundings when listening to music and Podcasts while in the lab.
