We don't store anything under the sinks in our lab per CAP regulations.  I do not understand why, nor do I have the specific checklist question at my fingertips, but we always make sure everything is removed from under the sinks at inspection time.

Hello Histonetters!
Has anyone heard of a regulation by CAP, CLIA or OSHA regarding commercial bleach stored under the laboratory sink.  My lab routinely has a gallon container of dated/ bio-labeled commercial bleach stored under the sink for cleaning purposes. Daily use to clean special stain coplin jars,etc..  I had a suspicious med tech tell my pathologist that is was against regulations to have it in the lab anytime !
Responses welcomed.
Have an awesome Thursday!
