I can't help with #1 (how is it that PPE would interferes with work on plants?) but for #2, we have a commercial laundry service come in once a week to take the soiled coats and return clean. Current cost is $3.09/coat/week. The information contained in this e-mail message and any attachments may be confidential. It is intended only for the use of the individual or entities named above.

I have a double fold question for the group and would appreciate any suggestions or ideas you may have 1. PPE in labs: We have a policy to wear Personal protective equipment (PPE) which include lab coats and safety glasses in all research labs. Our hard science group i.e. Chemistry, polymer sciences would wear them. The life science group: Biology, Vet and Animal science and psychology tend to fight the issue citing that they work with plants, and microscopes etc... My questions: Any of your organizations have encountered these same issues? .do you suggest individual Chem. Hygiene plans so that the PI can delineate areas for safety eyewear uses. Ca you suggest any sample of Individual Chem. Hygiene plan effective to use in a research labs, mostly in the life science ones? 2. Lab coats cleaning: Our researchers said they would use their lab coats more if the lab coats can be cleaned by the institution. Do you have an inexpensive service on campus for dirty lab coats? We asked they don't take the contaminated coats home to be cleaned. Thank you in advance for all your help and /or suggestions. Have a great New Year!
