Subject: [Histonet] No food or drink in the lab
Does anyone know of a specific site and quote that states "No food or drink in the lab" and what the consequences would be? That covers drinks/snacks in the cabinets above their workstations too, right? I have a sign up on the door entering the lab that states no food or drink, but the staff continue to keep stuff around their desk, so I need something to back me up from CLIA, OSHA, CAP, etc...
