Dear Laboratory Managers,

Based on your feedback, Safety has worked with Thermo Fisher Scientific to host a personal protective equipment (PPE) fair that will include most of the major PPE manufacturers.   The PPE Fair is scheduled for Friday, May 4th from 11am until 1pm.  Please note that you will be receiving an Outlook invite tomorrow.

The purpose of the PPE fair is to present low cost, high quality, and novel PPE that will garner the protection required to meet laboratory operating standards for all BSL1, BSL2 and chemistry laboratories.  Lab managers will have the chance to review, evaluate, and select PPE that they believe will provide sufficient protection, utility, and comfort aiding in the routine use of this equipment when working in campus laboratories.
