Surplus Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Distribution


Surplus Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Distribution


Selected UCSF laboratory employees can now receive UCOP-funded surplus PPE remaining from the University of California bulk distribution events held in early 2014. To receive this PPE, employees must have completed the LHAT risk assessment tool by July 1, 2014 and schedule a fitting appointment with the Office of Environment, Health, and Safety (EH&S) by April 15th, 2015.

EH&S will fill orders on a first-come-first-served basis. Quantities are limited. If PPE sizes are unavailable, PI’s can purchase legally required PPE through BearBuy. PPE distribution and fitting will begin on March 17, 2015 and end on June 27, 2015 or while supplies last. Click on the following to schedule a fitting appointment:

Prior to scheduling a PPE fitting, employees MUST:

  1. Be added to their lab’s roster through the Laboratory Hazard Assessment Tool (LHAT)
  2. Complete LHAT Training on the LHAT portal.
  3. Print PPE voucher.

Employees MUST bring their printed LHAT voucher so EH&S can fit them to their recommended PPE.
