Obtaining Free PPE

Steps for Obtaining Free Personal Protective Equipment

After the lab supervisor completes the Assessment process, their workers login to the Assessment to review the assessment results, watch a short training video, take a short quiz.  After completing the quiz one may pick-up two free lab coats and eyewear at the Graduate Storeroom in the Dept. of Chemistry & Biochemistry (Bldg. 557, room 1432). Short-time lab workers may receive a “loaner” coat they return.

For the many short-term summer intern lab workers each year, the procedure for obtaining their PPE is generally different – click here

Room 1432 is on the Northside of the Chemistry building of the loading dock side.

Lab Coat Laundry Service

There are eight sites on campus for workers to drop off their dirty lab coats for laundering and pick-up when clean. Each coat will be marked with the coat’s unique identifier number and the individual’s name. Your cleaned coat will be returned to the one site that you designate. If you do not have building access to your designated laundry location, please contact your MSO. – FAQs Lab coats and safety eyewear which are no longer needed should be recycled for reuse by placing in the separate designated bins at one of the seven sites noted above.
