We are reviewing how lab coats are managed on our campus. We'd appreciate feedback on how your university/college handles lab coats (non-clinical) for research labs:

1. How are lab coats purchased?

The person they work for pays for the lab coats

2. How are they laundered?

The lab coats are labeled with the person's name and are laundered by an outside service.  People need to have more than one lab coat.  The Department pays for the laundering.

3. How is EH&S involved in the lab coat program?

EH&S advises on appropriate PPE and does lab inspections.
