"A Safety Minute" Tips by Dr. Ken Roy - NSELA Safety Compliance Officer

Posted: September 13, 2020

NSELA Safety Minute by Dr. Ken Roy – NSELA Safety Compliance Officer - For current safety updates five days a week, follow Dr. Ken on Twitter@drroysafersci.

"Methods for performing hand hygiene of gloved hands for extended use of disposable medical gloves" - CDC does not recommend disinfection of disposable medical gloves as standard practice. This practice is inconsistent with general disposable glove usage, but, in times of extreme disposable medical glove shortages, this option may need to be considered. This is a pandemic - can use soap and water on gloves - soap does kill the virus when lathered up as part of the cleaning process to reuse the gloves! Put gloves in a plastic bag with the name for the same student's use later. Check out this article to make sure you will have sufficient gloves for science/STEM lab use.
