Bio-ARROW - SmartForm - Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

Bio-ARROW Help

This section is for describing the personal protective equipment (PPE) that you use in your laboratory. You may check as many different types of PPE as necessary. PPE types that are always worn together can be listed together. Please note that responses are not required in all sections of the table.

 

This new page offers flexibility and allows you to have multiple entries based on location, agent, and/or activity. 

 

Please list the PPE used for your biological work. PPE specified in the exposure control section of your chemical hygiene plan or for use only with radiological materials does not need to be listed here. 

 

If you check two conditions (e.g. Worn when working with specific agent(s); Worn during a specific activity) please also add information in the “PPE Explain” section to specify if the PPE is either worn with the agent or during the specific activity or is the PPE used when both the activities and agent are used.

 

Core protocols will define the PPE required for entry or activities and you do not need to add information on PPE for core facilities.

Animal care and handling PPE does not need to be listed on the protocol unless the persons listed on this protocol are performing the animal care and handling activities. 

 

PPE specified in the spill protocol does not need to be listed here.
