Re: Microscopes in offices?

From:Vicki Gauch

 I have never heard of anything like that before !!!  Our pathologists have scopes in their carpeted offices and have for as long as I can remember.  Our sign out rooms are all carpeted AND have scopes in them as well.  I could understand OHS not wanting you to have stainers or other equipment using various chemicals in office spaces but I am not sure I see the reasoning for the microscope issue.  Keep us posted on this one....

We are designing a new lab building. One of the "standards" that the Office
of Health and Safety has dreamed up is that there is to be no "lab
equipment" in offices. The office area will be completely separated from the
lab area. They include in this mandate a requirement that offices cannot
have microscopes in them. Of course our pathologists are a bit miffed at
this requirement! All pathologists and technologists will have their own
offices in the office area. I was wondering if anyone on Histonet works with
a pathologist who is not allowed have a microscope in his/her office. Are
any pathologists offices with microscopes, or multihead microscope rooms,
required to have non-carpe
