Throughout my career I have maintained a strict policy of not allowing the consumption of any foods in our school science labs. I am now faced with new science teachers, and teachers from other departments, bringing foods into the labs even when hazardous materials are present. This is occurring despite a departmental policy against this practice. Is there a policy/regulation from STAO which deals with the issue of food consumption in science labs?
