Personal Protective Equipment
A revised policy for FNL Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is now in place at the Frederick National Laboratory
(FNL). The new policy provides for a minimum level of PPE in all FNL laboratories and animal facilities. The
policy is easy to understand and is easy to enforce by the supervisor. The new policy eliminates any question
about the minimum level of PPE. Supervisors can and should increase PPE requirements when appropriate. Compliance
with this policy will prevent injuries to our employees, notably eye injuries.
The new policy can be found in
Safety and Environmental Compliance Manual, chapter C-11.
