Our Policy is "You MUST wear a lab coat when WORKING in any of the labs".
This coat will not leave the lab unless for laundering. If you are simply
a lab to gather information, then a lab coat is not necessary. We have
separate hooks for street close and lab coats as not to create cross
contamination. Safety glasses are only required as per our risk

Hello everyone!  I am trying to find out if the common practice for
Chemistry PI's is to wear lab coats (during lab, research, and any other
time they are working with/around chemicals), per their Hazard
Assessments?  What about for Chemistry students?  Is it required that
they wear lab coats for the same?  Thanks for any information you can
