RE: Pitter-Patter...RE: HEADPHONES IN HISTOLOGY
|From:||"Hagerty, Marjorie A." <firstname.lastname@example.org>|
We had a discussion over this at our lab exec meeting. It was decided that
head phones would not be allowed. The head of risk management and the head
of the safety department considered it problematic. I am not sure I see that
it is a safety concern and they didn't give a specific reason. My personal
feeling is that if you are working in histo with a group of people, for
maximum efficiency, you need to be aware of what is going on and be able to
interact with coworkers. However, if it is not a busy lab, no frozens going
on, etc. Especially if it is off hours and you work alone, I am at a loss to
see a safety issue. If I was in histo working with others I would not like
it if a coworker was wearing earphones. Just my opinion. No one in the
hospital is allowed to wear headphones on the job.

They might not hear a pathologist coming until it's too late!

Does anyone know if there are any safety issues or requirements with people
wearing headphones in the histology lab?
