Returning PPE

What do I do with my PPE when I leave the lab?

Each lab member who is no longer affiliated with a lab is required to cross out his or her UC Merced NetID from the label on the collar using a permanent marker and follow the normal laundering procedures.  If a person switches labs, please bring the coat to EH&S to update the label.  If this is not done, the coat will be delivered to the old lab after laundering.

When the PI removes a lab member from LHAT, the PPE is marked out of the specific laboratory inventory. 

If lab coats are not returned, a hold can be placed on a student's transcript until the coat is either returned or purchased.

As a PI, what should I do when my student(s) leave the lab?

When students leave the lab, ensure they follow the above procedure for returning their PPE, and remove the individuals from your lab's LHAT group.
