"Devoting your life to scientific research does not mean that you should actually risk your life and granting as well as regulatory agencies will make sure that you don't"
Accidents in academic research labs around the country have called attention to the lack of attention to safety when researchers assume that students understand the risks in their labs. Many of the hazardous materials have become increasingly regulated and granting agencies are now demanding evidence that environmental and safety regulations are followed. The first thing that regulators review are training records. The Office of Environmental Health and Safety has developed a program to help researchers document training and assist in improving laboratory safety.
