I think that this is a key consideration; every type of PPE has disadvantages during their use as well as strengths. Often the user challenges that, for examples, gloves (spread of contamination), googles (impaired vision), lab coats (fit problems) can present are overlooked in trying to simplify the administrative aspects of a PPE program.
