There's nothing in the PPE language from OSHA which will help you directly in your quest.

 

But the University of California may be able to help.  We have a systemwide policy that basically requires lab workers to be covered from collarbone to toes which would include that bare ankle (they'll wear ballet flats, too, and expose the tops of their feet).

 

Here's the link to the policy statement:  http://policy.ucop.edu/doc/3500597/PersonalProtectiveEquip

 

Here's a link to some training resources that may be helpful to you:  http://www.ucop.edu/environment-health-safety/training/personal-protective-equipment.html

 

Hope this helps,

Debbie

Subject: [DCHAS-L] Lab PPE Question

 

Hi all-

   I need help with a lab concern about proper lab PPE. I had a question about yoga/ spandex pants. Some of our undergraduate students use these pants and their ankles are exposed because they wear low cut socks and sneakers. Is there anything in the PPE language from OSHA, that these pants are prohibited? Thank you in advance for your time.
