Spills, Labcoats, and You. The basics of laboratory safety


Don’t you hate just how hard it is to injure yourself in a work-place accident?

Are you sick of people leaving unknown chemical beakers on the floor all willy-nilly?

Don’t like that asshole chemist who didn’t give you space lube?

Well look no further!

What if, you got pushed/baton’ed with a beaker/cup in your hand, most of the contents would spill on you, some would spill on the pusher, and the rest would land on the floor.

Leave a beaker on the ground? People walking over it may knock it over and spill the contents onto their shoes and onto the ground.

This would give people a reason to wear their labcoats besides looking “cool” and having more room to store meth on their person.

Perhaps, mixing chemicals would have a minor chance to bubble and splash if they’re exothermic/heated up too fast?

I assume coding is a magical place where anything is possible, so it might be possible to make beakers get knocked over if you walk past and they’re too close to the edge?

Maybe it would be possible for spills to get into your eyes/arms, causing damage depending on the chemical. Goggles are important too!

10/10 would push my labcoat-less co-chemist with 100u of Sulphuric acid again
