A student seriously burned his eye in a University of Utah lab. The Univeristy knew about dangers beforehand, an audit finds, but didn’t take action. Covering his face with one hand, he ran around the room looking for an emergency eyewash. There wasn’t one. Bottomline - make sure your engineering controls like eyewash and emergency showers are operational and within 10 second access in all labs!  Besides some one getting seriously injured, there would be liability for not only the teachers, but also the supervisors and administrators. Does the term "reckless" mean anything?

American Chemical Society Division of Chemical Education. Great resource for supervisors to share with their science and STEM teachers. https://pubs.acs.org/doi/suppl/10.1021/acs.jchemed.7b00802/suppl_file/ed7b00802_si_001.pdf
