Don't Experiment with Your Safety - Choosing the Right Lab Coat


2/18/20 12:00 pm to 2/18/20 1:00 pm CST

Event Description

Lab coats have been used for decades, but they have typically been made from polyester or polyester/cotton blends with the primary purpose being to keep foreign materials off of the clothing worn under the coat. However, with increased awareness around the number of burn injuries related to thermal and chemical lab accidents, the use of flame resistant and chemical splash protective (FRCP) lab coats in research and commercial labs is becoming a more widely adopted component of lab safety.

In this webinar, we’ll take you through the basics of the chemical protection market, discuss common laboratory hazards and highlight the difference between FR, CP, FRCP and non-FR lab coats.

You’ll also learn about:

  • Common lab chemicals and flammables.
  • The attributes of today’s lab coats.
  • The basics of FR/CP lab coats.
  • How to select the right lab coat.
