At the DCHAS technical sessions today, the person from the University of California system reported that one of the big lessons learned from their recent PPE program rollout was the importance of having labcoats fitted for female wearing. Their experience is that many new hazards were created by poorly fitting labcoats and eye protection and a good program has to fit the equipment to the person wearing it.
