It would be fine, if there could be found a compromise. We have the radio on
during cutting time, but it is quiet enough not to "overblow" work. And in
the minutes nobody talks it is quite amousing to listen daily infos and
And yes, also for me it would be a pain to listen to "hard" music at work
all the time.
On the other hand, a pathologist in our department loves classic music at
the microscope. - that's also too much for me. ;)

Betreff: [Histonet] Music in the Laboratory

I would like to know what other histology laboratories allow for music  
players while working.  Do you have formal policies about music content or  
volume?  Do you allow lab space doors to remain closed to muffle the volume
what is being played?  Are headsets allowed?  
I am a terrible judge of this because I personally prefer to work in a  
quiet environment.  I am trying to be open minded, as long as the work gets

done.  However, one of the techs had a song playing today that I  believe
inappropriate for general listening in the lab.  Am I just out  of touch?  
Is that dang "F" word just something I'm going to have to learn  to accept?

Do you have a written policy?  When/how/why was it  implemented?
I should mention that it's a small private lab, with minimal patient  
traffic.  We do see our share of FedEx, UPS, sales & service  reps.
Your ideas on this is very much appreciated.
