Investing in a PPE Rental Program for Proper Lab Safety

Are you required to wear PPE at work?  

The laboratory environment can be a hazardous place to work. Laboratory workers can be exposed to endless potential hazards throughout the workday, including chemical, biological, physical, and radioactive hazards.

The OSHA Laboratory Safety Guidelines provide rules that protect workers that are exposed to these types of hazards in the workplace. All employers, whether you are an incubator, university, research, or pharmaceutical lab, are required to provide personal protective equipment (PPE) to comply with OSHA standards.

The question is, does it make sense to purchase your own uniforms and PPE directly or consider a full-service, all-inclusive lab safety apparel program from Crown?

Crown Uniform & Linen Service is proud to partner with MassBio and its members as the preferred service provider for PPE apparel.

Crown customer, LabCentral, said it best – “Our needs require a tremendous amount of extra work from Crown than what other linen businesses have to do. Crown does it very well, with no complaints, always with a smile.”
