Hi Daniel - This topic has been covered on the list ( Our division has presented symposiums and has a published book in the ACS Symposium Series on the topic (

It is very confusing to me as to why the instructor canceled lab? The regulations are well established for accommodations of service animals (

I would suggest you consult with your institution's office of disabilities (may be another name at your school).

My name is Daniel and I have lab safety question. One of our students brought a PTSD service dog to one of our physics labs. The instructor had to cancel lab until further notice. Could someone please share rules or regulations in terms of lab safety.

We, the willing, led by the unknowing, are doing the impossible for the ungrateful. We have done so much, for so long, with so little, we are now qualified to do everything with nothing. Teresa Arnold paraphrased from Konstantin Josef Jire?ek (1854 ?? 1918)
