Peggy's comments are right on!  There are times when
those who have some official functions related to
safety, (and who have no concept of actual lab
practices) try to dictate nonsense.  If things get a
little hairy, do what I did just this Wednesday--when
I got home, I poured a glass of a nice Merlot, and my
wife and I toasted to "insanity".  Seemed the only
sane thing to do.
