Cleaning supplies may be stored under the sink, but since "things" have a way of migrating there as well, we just have a blanket rule, nothing under the sink.  Of course, this would never occur in the Histology Department, LOL. The space is actually locked off.

Subject: [Histonet] Bleach Regs
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!
