Cleaning glassware this morning, and accidentally dropped a litre glass bottle, which smashed onto the floor. Fortunately, it was only water but this event did send me into some 'What-If' thinking. If that bottle had been full of formalin, strong acid, etc., etc., there could have been a rather dangerous situation.
I do keep a container of kitty-litter on hand for absorbing spills which is probably sufficient for most darkroom chemistry.
After a little bit of thinking, I've come to the conclusion that my darkroom (laundry room) could made a lot safer: spill containment, eye-wash, fire-extinguisher etc., A spill-kit for dealing with acetone, aldehydes, acids etc., is on the list too.
Do you have a safety protocol? Any suggestion are welcome.
