Personal Protective Clothing and Equipment (PPCE)

For comprehensive information see Personal Protective Equipment Guideline.


PPCE must be worn where a Material Safety Data Sheet or a risk assessment calls for its use. Appropriate footwear is required to be worn in all laboratories.  Shoes must have closed toe and closed heel. They must not be able to slip off when the wearer is moving backward.

Laboratory supervisors are responsible for enforcing the wearing of PPCE in labs under their control.
