I've always been a little afraid of something horrible happening in the lab. I would really hate to have to strip in front of everyone I work with
You would definitely want to strip if you spilled large amounts of acid on yourself. Who cares if you have to get naked, at least you won't burn yourself. I once heard of a guy who spilled some sort of acid on himself and refused to strip down past his underpants because he was embarrassed, needless to say he severely burnt his manhood, which could have been avoided by stripping.
How will I stay safe? Hmm.. I'll start by not pouring the big one gallon jug over my arms, wear some goggles and everythign else i described up there ^^^^ in my last post.
I think the most important thing is to protect your eyes. Many people in Australia have lost their eyesight using swimming pool acid because they don't realise the risks involved. Usually long pants, closed shoes, long sleeves, lab coat and goggles along with the dishwashing gloves described by Borek should be enough. I would certainly not store the gallon container near the trash, that is a bad idea. Store it locked in a shed, preferebly on some sort of acid proof shelf or tray.
