We are trying to get a handle on the current norm for providing lab coats (or aprons) in 1) teaching labs, and 2) in research labs at academic institutions.
Has anyone done any benchmarking or know of any recent articles?
Some of the questions we have include:
Do you require “lab coats” in academic chemistry teaching labs?
Do you require “aprons” in academic teaching labs?
Do you require “lab coats” in research labs?
Do you require “fire resistant (FR) lab coats” in organic research labs?
Do you rent them?
Do you purchase them?
Do you have the vendor launder them?
Do you launder them yourselves?
Who pays for them?
