Regulations: Personal protective equipment (PPE) in the laboratory
Personal protective equipment (PPE) is a protective measure to protect the user in the laboratory from hazardous substances or dangerous working materials. To this end, the manufacturer of the protective equipment must comply with the health and safety requirements of Directive 89/686/EEC . The employer, in turn, is obliged to provide the employee with the appropriate personal protective equipment for the (chemical) laboratory in perfect quality and to implement the corresponding regulations on the basis of the legal basis of the Hazardous Substances Ordinance & Occupational Health and Safety Act.
However, many companies neglect this obligation. In summary, this means for employers: If the PPE in a company is not provided and stored according to the legal requirements, fines may be imposed. PPE for the laboratory is necessary because the chemical reagents and other working materials in the laboratory often contain toxic or corrosive substances.
Improper handling can cause serious health problems - from skin irritation to respiratory infections to cancer. The employer bears the responsibility for the safety of employees here and is therefore obliged to provide them with PPE and to regularly check for compliance.
In addition, there are product-specific standards and guidelines depending on the requirements, area of application and method of testing. This applies, for example, to the most frequently used and most important personal protective equipment in the laboratory: protective gloves. There are major differences in terms of quality and resistance to chemicals or microorganisms, exemplified by the penetration of the gloves at the molecular or macroscopic level (permeation or penetration).

Criteria for choosing the right protective equipment
When choosing your personal protective equipment, it is important to consider the following:
- Environmental conditions (e.g. risk of explosion).
- Type of hazard (e.g. toxic substances, mechanical influences such as tearing or cutting movements)
- Body size and shape of the wearer
- Duration of exposure to the work situation and other factors.
Remember that protective equipment is only truly safe if it is properly selected and fitted, and correctly used and maintained. Choose the most appropriate protective clothing and equipment for your job and the risk.
Take the opportunity to seek advice from a professional. Check regularly that your protective equipment is still intact and suitable for the activity ahead. Pay attention to the manufacturer's instructions for use and maintenance instructions.
