Laboratory workers are often exposed to an abundance of flammable and combustible liquids that pose the risk of burn injury. Although these risks cannot always be removed, they can often be managed. By conducting a hazard assessment, eliminating hazards where possible, instituting engineering and administrative controls, and ensuring the issuance and proper use of personal protective equipment (PPE), employers can help provide a safer work environment.
Employers that implement a PPE program that’s specific to lab hazards will help protect workers and labs from the outcomes of serious injuries from exposure to these hazards. This whitepaper provides employers with information on the uses and benefits of FR/CP and CP lab coats.
