We actually have a policy on when and where gloves are to be worn for
the whole laboratory.  (clinical and anatomic)   It's crazy.   In our
lab, it is personal preference while cutting.   I have one tech who
wears gloves (he was a med tech) and the other tech and I do not.

Subject: [Histonet] Wearing gloves while cutting sections

While I was on vaction, the safety committee came around and did rounds
in the lab.  They sited us for not wearing gloves while cutting
sections.  My techs tried to explain to them that we did not have to
wear gloves, only when cutting frozen sections or while handling fresh
tissue. I have never worn gloves while cutting paraffin sections.  Now
my manager wants me to write a policy in regards to not wearing gloves.
Does anyone have anything like this in place that they would be willing
to share with me.  Your help would be greatly appreciated.
