Safety share: Top 3 lab coat tips
Not all lab coats are created equal. Select a lab coat that keeps you comfortable and safe with all the right features.
- Use a lab coat with snaps instead of buttons. If your lab coat gets contaminated, snaps will help you get it off in a hurry.
- Use a flame-retardant lab coat. They’re more expensive…but your safety and well-being are worth it!
- Use a lab coat with elastic cuffs. They’re easier to tuck into gloves. They’re also less likely to catch on or knock things over compared with loose cuffs.
