Just about every profession in the world has a certain uniform to go along with it. Mechanics have coveralls, the New York Yankees have their pinstripes, chefs have double breasted white coats and plumed hats, while lab techs, pharmacists, and doctors have the Lab Coat.
The Benefits of Lab Coats and Lab Coat Rental
Anyone who has ever worked in a laboratory or medical center knows that a lab coat is more than just a fashion statement. These simple garments protect you and your skin and your street clothes from spills, splashes, and contamination. But this is just the beginning. Additional benefits include:
- Lab coats help make employees instantly recognizable, which can be incredibly important in a laboratory or medical setting.
- Clothing made from synthetic fibers will melt in heat or fire, causing severe burns. Lab coats are traditionally made of cotton or specialized fabric that will not melt under extreme heat. In fact, most lab coats are fire resistant.
- Lab coats help prevent the spreading of contamination by providing a removable barrier in the event of an incident involving a spill or splash of hazardous substances. Lab coats can be easily removed and safely transported to be cleaned before re-use.
- Lab coats are durable and light weight, making them incredibly comfortable to wear.
- Two researchers from Northwestern University even argue that a lab coat can not only change the way others perceive its wearer, but also the way the wearer perceives him or herself. “The clothes we wear have power not only over others, but also over ourselves,” explained Hajo Adam and Adam Galinsky in the Journal of Experimental Social Psychology.
- And More.
