The Laboratory Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Hazard Assessment Guide (Word) identifies hazards to which laboratory workers may be exposed and specifies PPE to protect against these hazards during work operations. When completed, the document and its associated training will satisfy the Department of Labor and Industries requirements for PPE as required in Washington Administrative Code (WAC) 296-800-160.
This document must be completed by the Principal Investigator (PI), Lab Manager or their designee. This person must conduct a laboratory hazard assessment that is specific to operations in their laboratory space(s). EH&S personnel are available to assist with the hazard assessment and can review the form. EH&S may be consulted by calling 206.543.7388. The PI/Lab Manager is responsible for ensuring PPE requirements are followed.
