Since 1973, Dr. Jim Kaufman has been collecting anecdotal accounts of lab accidents. The collection now includes more than 5,000 examples of what happens when you break the rules. The first 1,500 have been published by LSI in a three volume series, Learning By Accident. In this compilation, we’ve included the most serious accident report for each of the last one hundred years. We hope you’ll find them to be an instructive and graphic reminder of the need for continued vigilance and understanding.
