I believe that the employer can also provide disposable lab aprons that do the same, not just a lab coat.

As far as I can remember, OHSA requires that employees wear a fluid
impervious lab coat to protect their clothing and it is the responsibility
of the employer to provide and launder the lab coats.

[Histonet] Formaldehyde and scrubs

Does anyone know of any regulations (OSHA or otherwise) that require
employers to provide scrubs to anyone who works with formaldehyde (in
order to prevent them from taking contaminated clothing home)?
