Wherever possible, aerosol-producing operations should be performed in a biological safety cabinet (see Chapter 9) if the aerosol may present a hazard to the laboratory worker (103, 349). 2 summarizes certain aerosol-producing operations and gives the ranges of resulting airborne particle output from each process. 2 Protective Clothing and Personal Equipment* Protective clothing and personal equipment are used to protect the laboratory worker from contact with infectious, toxic, or corrosive agents, and from excessive heat, fire, and other physical hazards.

The equipment must be easy to maintain to ensure that it functions properly when needed. • Instruction. Laboratory workers must learn the proper use of personal protective equipment as well as how to recognize when this equipment is needed and when it must be serviced, cleaned, or replaced. 2 Laboratory Clothing Laboratory clothing is designed to protect the wearer, the experiment, and the environment against contamination. The user must wear the garments in the manner intended to ensure the benefits of the protection they can provide.
