Re: Microscopes in offices?

From:Lori Miller (by way of histonet)

Wow! Not only do we have scopes in the offices, we have a "scope office" in
the office area! It is of course, standard that no biological hazards be
taken to these scopes.
It seems that if your Office of Health and Safety has come up with this,
they will be able to defend this decision when questioned. And if not, (if
I knew you well enough, I'd say screw 'em!  :o)
This wasn't much help, just my 2 cents worth before my first cup of coffee!

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
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
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-carpeted
