Garments worn as Personal Protective Equipment

Garments worn as personal protective equipment must meet the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) standards. This will ensure that the wearer will not be contaminated if there is a splash or splatter of blood or other potentially infectious material. The outer protective garment should be fluid resistant, such as a nonwoven gown or a long-sleeved, cuffed laboratory coat with high resistance to fluid penetration. The lab coat should be fully closed when working in the laboratory.

Scrub suits do not offer adequate protection.
If a garment is contaminated with blood, it must be removed immediately, or as soon as it is feasibly possible.
