Foot Protection

Closed toe shoes must be worn at all times when in the laboratory; open toe shoes and/or sandals are not permitted in any circumstance. Each affected employee must wear protective footwear when working in areas where there is a high risk of objects falling on or rolling across the foot, piercing the sole, and where the feet are exposed to electrical or chemical hazards. If there is a high risk of chemical contamination to the foot (e.g., cleaning up a chemical spill on the floor), then chemical-resistant booties may need to be worn as well.
