Summer Lab Attaire

When working with chemicals and organisms in your labs please make sure you wear proper Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).  The proper PPE at a minimum consists of a labcoat, closed toed shoes, safety glasses, and gloves when managing chemicals.  

Exceptions

Please note that for those that work in labs that only manage test kits do not fall under the OSHA Chemical Hygiene Standard and therefore shorts can be worn in those instances.  If any chemicals are being used that can cause damage to the skin, sweat pants can be worn temporarily during that kind of work at those locations (Examples would be the farm & aquaculture). 

All other labs in Founders, Foster, and anywhere else non-test kit chemicals are being used pants must be worn while working with chemicals in the lab.  Also note that sweat pants worn over shorts in the lab is an acceptable option in this situation.
