I am interested to benchmark what other organizations do/ require regarding leg coverings in labs. Are legs required to be covered in all labs? Or in some labs, but not others (e.g., in chemistry labs, but biology/ biotech)? I realize that the default answer most of us who are EHS professionals would provide is "yes, of course leg coverings are required in labs!=", but again I am curious to learn what others actually doing and if the issue is directly addressed via your site CHP or other documents.
My site currently "strongly recommends=E2=80 =9D leg coverings in all labs and require them in labs using radioisotopes in our CHP (and in general have very few folks who actually wear shorts and/or skirts in labs, but some do on occasion), but are re-visiting this issue as part our ongoing risk assessment process.
