Can I sue the university for not having soap in a chemistry laboratory?

I am taking an environmental chemistry course where we work with poisonous chemicals. Our laboratory is brand new, so there are a lot of things that are still being installed (such as paper towel dispensers, shelves, etc). We have been in school for a mo

Answers:

So,make your own soap,already.

No. Anyone with half a brain would have figured out to ASK. Tell them the soap priority has been overlooked. In the meantime, take your own bar of soap until they get the lab properly furnished. What you are suggesting would be a frivolous lawsuit, thrown out, with cost assessed to you.

That's not how to get this fixed.
Look up the local OSHA contact, and call them in the morning.
There are a list of essential items the school MUST have in order to operate a legal laboratory, and if they aren't present, the lab must shut down until they get all of it.

Lawsuits are for when you lose money or something of monetary worth due to the actions of someone else. They aren't necessarily the best way of making someone comply with the law. For the money you'd pay to sue for soap, you could buy the entire stock of soap in the three nearest grocery stores.

Any competent adult can write anything in a civil complaint, pay the filing fee and present it the the clerk of a court. If you do not have a claim for damages that complaint will be dismissed as being frivolous.

just call OSHA...they could shut down the whole course until fixed..and they will

not successfully

You can sue for anything, unless you have been injured in some way it would be thrown out immediately. How about you just carry some soap, much easier solution.

You can literally sue a ham sandwich, if you want to. It may be easy to sue a university for that, but hard to win. On the other hand, there may be public health agencies that would appreciate the report so they can investigate for you.

What sort of environmental chemistry student doesn't know how to make their own soap?

yes.
