Histology comrades,
	I am "the new guy" to the lab and am concerned about the
following possible safety issues...

-Open flame. (bunsen burner)  I personally haven't used an open flame for
embedding since       1984...  If find several forceps in the heated
wells quite adequate.  We've already had one          flaming garbage can
(that was hidden from the lab manager) and singed log sheets...
-Glove-less frozen sections - Currently one other tech (also new) and
myself are the only ones    to use gloves while cutting a frozen section.
 The other 5 techs use their bare-naked hands.
-Glove-less coverslipping - Again the new tech and myself are the only
ones to use gloves.

Don't want to be a "tattle-tale" to the lab manager and I have brought it
up to the "Team", but no one seems concerned except me.  Any
comments/suggestions?
