Agreed. We were cognizant of this as we were preparing the booklet. I am more concerned that in the photo on page 4, the cap is on the vol flask that the student is pouring!

Did you notice that the women on page 4 and page 21 were not wearing gloves?

Does anyone have a safety training session such as a PowerPoint
appropriate for undergraduate Chemistry Teaching/Lab Assistants?  

Unfortunately, I don't know of any generic Powerpoint files built
specifically for this purpose. I developed a couple of these presentations
on two different campuses and the contents were tailored to aspects of the
labs that needed to be highlighted for the labs those departments were
doing. 

However, the ACS document "Safety in the Academic Chemistry Labs" (available
at https://tinyurl.com/acssacl ) was revised last year and contains the
information appropriate for this setting. It could be an interesting CHAS
project to develop a Powerpoint that encompasses this content to provide a
starting point for people in situations that you describe.

Let me know if you have any questions about this.
