"How to Dress for the Lab? And what about Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)?"  Wearing personal protective equipment (PPE) for short is one of the main ways for teachers and their students to stay protected from injury in the lab. PPE includes things like goggles, gloves, lab coats or aprons.  Great ACS video to prep for this coming school year's safety protocols in the lab.
