Hello All,
I'm being asked to address uniforms for chemical waste pickup in a hospital (histology waste, in particular). I figured that you all may have some experience in the matter.

For those of you working at hospitals, or other clinical environments, what type of uniform, attire, and/or PPE do your waste pickup techs wear?

I don't mean for bulking, but for transport within buildings and outside to a facility or truck.

I've tried to bring up using lab coats, but there's a blanket ban on PPE in public areas for various reasons (I can look to getting an exception for this specific process, but it's not a trivial process, so I really want to be sure about what I want before pursuing it)

Thanks for your input,
