Lipscomb University students exposed to n-bromosuccinimide

Via Nashville local channel WTVF, this story with a statement from Lipscomb University: 
Last night while conducting a routine lab experiment, three students came in contact, on their hands, with a substance identified as n-Bromosuccinimide (NBS). Out of an abundance of caution, the three students were transported last night to a medical facility for an examination of the skin irritation. They were evaluated, cared for, released last night and are back on campus today and attending classes as scheduled.

Sounds like someone decided that it was okay to run bromination experiments without gloves, which doesn't seem particularly wise.
