You and your supervisor, lab manager or principal investigator (PI) should complete a written PPE assessment as part of your orientation. The department provides the necessary PPE to protect you from workplace hazards you may be exposed to if the exposure cannot be eliminated or controlled by other means. You may be required to wear eye, face, head, hands, body, feet, hearing, and respiratory protection. Training on the proper use and care of PPE may be provided by your department, a vendor, or by EH&S.
EH&S provides consultation on PPE selection and offers services related to personal-assigned equipment.
