This looks good and I agree with Nancy that we need to get the word out
to the users about the new form or they won't know to use it. Also, have
you thought about what happens if someone doesn't fill out the form and
just goes on in the lab (or maybe this doesn't happen)?  How are we
going to police this?

Hi Mary,

I think the form looks pretty perfect.  I am a tad worried about how we 
get the word out that the forms *must* be signed.  I wonder if there is 
a way to send out a 'policy statement' message every three or so months.

  Actually, that would be a good thing for several other of our policys,

esp. those newbies aren't getting, or oldsters have 'forgotten'.

We might have a rather public place (near the lab door) where either 
blanks are kept, or filled out forms filed in a book, as a reminder.
