RE: [Histonet] Microwave safety

From:"Weems, Joyce"

The sad thing is that we all know this, but it continues to be a growing issue in our country. What can we do to stop it? It's like a run-away train? j

Joe and Anne:
Have you both forgotten that every time a lab buys a cheap "home" microwave, the large lab equipment manufacturing companies lose a sale?
Have you forgotten that if an accident happens (no matter how remote the possibility is) any "good claims attorney" will be able to twist the issue to "nail" somebody for using an equipment "against the manufacturer's specifications"?
We are talking about monetary interests, not about personnel safety!

hey joe
i have had accidents in my kitchen - but never in the lab

im also getting a little tired of the CAP dictatorship - and we have not even started yet!!!
if they were all dyed-in-the-wool histotechs with years and years of experience i would find it easier to accept - but then again if they had all that histo experience they would certainly not be expecting/demanding all these silly 'improvements'

am also flipping annoyed that i am being told which EQA i can and cannot use
- the list of CAP approved EQA facilities does not include NEQAS or RCPA QAP, both of which i use and am extremely satisfied with ....

CAP are all about the money

thats my vent for the decade

whew....i feel better already!!!!
