There's no requirement I know of that gets that specific.
Use common sense... if safety glasses are required upon entering the lab, put them right outside the door so the can be donned before entering.
etc.

That is what I typically see. PPE stations immediately prior to entering the work area.

If safety glasses are a requirement for all staff working in that area should they not be a standard issue and each have their own individual pair for use? We only keep safety glasses for visitors with general access otherwise all staff are issued a pair they are expected to look after and have readily available for usage.

Hello !

Duff what sort of "specific place" (identifying the provision of PPE) do you hope for ? And why would you need this "specific place" (to consider this provision) ?

PPE provision for people exposed to certain risks (general laboratory work or any other work) results from your risk assessment process and your choice of prevention method (PPE then being almost the last solution ...).

Best regards.

Safety glasses (only one type of PPE) should be available for anyone who needs them. It's possible to have one's own safety glasses and walk across a big building only finding out at the last minute that you left them on your desk. A bit irresponsible, perhaps, but also wasteful for someone to have to backtrack to get them.

True Jim but in all of our production areas due to chemistry staff are expected to be wearing the appropriate PPE at all times, all doors leading to the shop floor warn staff to wear their PPE (which if lost or broken is accessible to all senior staff to sign out for them) at all times.

Thank you for your answers. My concern, I guess, was that there was a certain designated area that things such as safety glasses and gloves were needed to be placed for easy access. Thanks again for the responses, very helpful
