Sheila, I neglected to mention that the lab coat is MINIMUM! For bromine, POCl3, etc... chemical resistant PPE is required per the compound's SOP. Donna >>> "Sheila M. Kennedy"

Date: Wed, 1 Sep 2004 14:10:18 -0700 From: Dawn Ianson To: Sheila M. Kennedy Stressgen Biotechnologies---We require that employees WORKING in the Lab wear a lab coat. If the individual is sitting at a lab bench desk (they are at the end of the lab benches) and doing paper work then they are not required to wear it. Similarly if one enters the lab to get a file or data and then leaves again they are not required. But anytime they are actively working on a research/ manufacturing project they must wear one. Can we also open this discussion to appropriate clothing? For example, skirts and the 3/4 length pants that are being worn. What about mid drifts and low rider pants? Do anybody have any experience dealing with this "fashion" and working in a chemical lab? If so what has your company doing about it? ~D
