Gloves & Safety

Gloves & Safety Equipment

It is vital to keep on top of lab safety in your lab year-round to help keep your team members safe every day and conduct good science in safety. Here are some tips to help with this, and below are all the products you need to kit out your lab with gloves and safety equipment.

Biohazard and Containers:

You can find safety Biohazard bags, containers, and labels here.

Sharps containers should be placed as close as possible to the general area where sharps are used or anticipated to be found. As with your Biohazard Containers, your Sharps Containers should be inspected periodically depending on usage, and not allowed to overfill (OSHA, 1993). Containers should be closable, resistant to punctures during storage, handling, and transport, leak-proof on the sides and bottom, and appropriately labeled and/or color-coded.

Gloves:

Schedule a monthly check of your inventory to make sure you have gloves available in all the sizes your team needs. Powder free gloves are less messy and reduce the risk of contamination because they don’t leave residue on clothing or hands. Hypoallergenic nitrile gloves should be available for employees that have sensitivities to Latex (OSHA 2011a).

Powder-free Latex and Nitrile Gloves are available here.

Lab Equipment Safety:

When operating an autoclave or other sterilizer, it is important to be conscientious of your risk for burns or cuts when handling heat-sterilized glassware, sharp instruments, or other items (OSHA, 2011b). Be sure to use oven mitts transporting items in and out of the autoclave and steel mesh gloves for handling sharp instruments. Make sure the autoclave door is securely shut and locked before starting a new sterilization cycle. Remember to use autoclave tape to ensure your autoclave is heating to the correct temperature for sterilization (OSHA 2011b).

Emergency Procedures:

Have an emergency plan in place and make sure all employees are trained and able to execute it. Be sure you know where the nearest fire extinguisher, fire alarm, and emergency exits are. You should also know where the first aid kits and emergency shower and eyewash stations are in case of an emergency (OSHA, 1993).
