Wearing Gloves Outside LaboratoriesBy Bob Colichio
I often receive complaints regarding individuals who wear gloves in hallways and touching elevator buttons, railings or door knobs with their gloved hands.
Many people are concerned about potential laboratory contamination transfer from gloves. You may have been working with something non-hazardous or radioactive but, the rest of us donít know that.
We strongly encourage laboratory workers to only wear gloves in the laboratories. Obtain a clean pair of gloves at your destination if required.
