Subject: [DCHAS-L] Question for teaching and research university labs
Good afternoon.--- For more information about the DCHAS-L e-mail list, contact the Divisional membership chair at membership**At_Symbol_Here**dchas.org Follow us on Twitter **At_Symbol_Here**acsdchasI have had inquiries about this from several of our teaching faculty as of late and after proposing it to the chemical hygiene committee on campus today, it was suggested that we reach out to larger universities to see how they handle these concerns.We have noticed an increase in the number of students with very, very long (often acrylic) fingernails. This is a concern for many reasons in a lab, but particularly in regard to gloves.Does anyone have a procedure or lab safety rules addressing this?
