NCNR has developed the following requirements to implement this policy:
Protection of the Body
Protective clothing: Lab workers are to be suitably dressed to avoid injury. Footwear and clothing must be appropriate for each particular lab environment and protective clothing (afforded by lab coats, coveralls, aprons, etc.) may be required for some lab work. Additional protection (such as gloves, face shields, splash goggles, plastic aprons, boots, and legstats) may also be required to perform some experiments. Line supervision will determine the appropriate protective clothing and dress requirements for each lab. Contaminated clothing is to be promptly cleaned or discarded in a manner consistent with disposal of the contaminant itself (see DISPOSAL OF HAZARDOUS WASTE in Chapter V). In addition, care must be taken to prevent contaminated clothing from coming into contact with doorknobs, fixtures, furnishings, apparatus, controls, etc., which unprotected personnel may subsequently contact.
These requirements apply to all NCNR laboratory and facility users, including NIST staff and guest researchers. If you are a local contact for users, please remind your users to bring appropriate clothing based upon the activities they are involved in.Last modified 29-August-2012 by website owner: NCNR (attn: Przemek Klosowski)
