Recipients have demonstrated proficiency around open flames in laboratory settings.
Level 2 – I’m pretty confident around the flame that butyllithium makes at the syringe tip.
Level 3 – I’m pretty confident with scaleups involving alkylmetals.
Level 4 – I work with solid rocket boosters for a living.
(I do none of the above. Have had colleagues that do all of them.)
I got this one recently, after setting the flow hood on fire twice and flaming my gloves once.
After much hard work and perserverence (and confirmation from a lab partner), I can officially say I have earned this badge. Whew!
Level 4 — work with APCP all the time. Played with homemade explosives when I was a kid. Got some burn marks too! W00T!
(lucky to be alive to tell about it)
