AbstractThis is one of a series of nine scenarios developed by Michael Loui and C. K. Gunsalus, which asks students to act out a case study looking at the safe handling of hazardous materials. This file, in pdf format, includes instructions for use and discussion guidelines, general principles that apply to hazardous materials handling, a summary, resources, and handouts to be given to various participants. The case study focuses on a conversation between two graduate students who have witnessed the improper disposal of hazardous chemicals by fellow students. The student who has these concerns really likes his faculty advisor, but the lab is a mess and there is no supervision of guidance for students using these dangerous materials in the lab.
