Semester 2 post 9
After having worked in an office doing research for a couple weeks, Kathleen asked if I would like to head down to the waste room and take care of some other tasks she had available for me to do. I have to say it was pretty cool being down in the waste room getting to see what labs work with and how chemicals are disposed of properly and amount of knowledge it takes to do that job. Knowing what hazards a chemical has and how to properly dispose of is no piece of cake. especially when kits are received and the contents of the kits must be separated and disposed of separately. I never really thought about that side of the labs but its a great experience.
