OK I have to jump in too. We require impermeable coats with tight cuffs and 
high collars, gloves and goggles for everything but cutting. Most lab coats 
have at least a little polyester in them and you are asking for static 
trouble if you wear one while cutting. Plus they are too hot. The coats 
gloves and goggles are more for chemical protection than biohazard, cause by 
the time the tissue is processed we consider it not infectious. Also, we 
require a particle mask when weighing dry chemicals. Add boots, hat and face 
shield for the gross cutting room. Our institution doesn't allow jeans, and 
even if it did, they are too tight and uncomfortable to allow efficient and 
easy movement, sitting, etc around the lab.
