PPE Fitting Appointments

Environment, Health, and Safety (EH&S) is offering PPE fitting appointments at the Parnassus and Mission Bay Campus.


Appointments are required and take about 15-20 minutes per person.


Before getting fitted for PPE, take a hazard assessment using the Laboratory Hazard Assessment Tool (LHAT). After training is completed, a voucher will be provided to you with instructions on where to pick up your PPE. LHAT is used by all academic appointees, staff, students, and visitors to prevent workplace illnesses and injuries.

LHAT allows you to:

As a Principal Investigator (PI)

  • Identify or add lab workers into their lab group
  • Determine hazards that are present in the lab through guided questions
  • Communicate laboratory hazards to personnel through the LHAT
  • Identify the proper PPE to be used based on the hazard assessment

As Laboratory Personnel

  • Identify with a lab group
  • View potential hazards present in the lab through the assessment
  • Receive a list of proper PPE to be used in your lab setting
  • Receive training & demonstrate understanding of the training on the selected PPE for your lab

  1. Be added to your lab’s roster through the Laboratory Hazard Assessment Tool (LHAT)
