I've seen my unattended experiment form posted and never removed, although since wrote the form so that it's really for a specific operation, there's not too much of that problem. It would probably be a good idea to put an expiration date on it-I'll have to add that to my form.

We have been trying to come up with a better name for it. So, thank you for bringing this up. I also think I will had the response info.
Our policy is to include these on any reactions that are going and any item that is left on that heats (heatblocks, autoclaves, furnaces, etc) when the person responsible is not in the room (for lunch, overnight-). However, I am having trouble with them putting them on the equipment or hood and never removing them. Now, they have become just another sign that is ignored. Anyone else have this problem?
You can find Yale's placard on the EHS website and through this direct link.
I would also be interested in understanding how others determine their respective "unattended" threshold - not sure if you can tease that out of the forms alone.

I know that several campuses and/or chemistry departments have developed placard systems for chemical operations which are left unattended. The purpose of these signs is in case an incident occurs when the person who set up the process is not immediately available to answer questions about it.
I am interested in developing a list of these efforts in order to understand what level of detail people have determined is best suited for their needs in this respect. If you have developed a formal system that serves this purpose, I would appreciate it if you would share an URL to the form or a PDF copy of the form. I'll provide a list of what I receive to the list later this week.
Thanks for any help with this.
