University of Nebraska-Lincoln Chemistry Department Eliminates Recordable Accidents with Lab Coat Program from Cintas and OMNIA Partners

APPA Business Partner Whitepaper Series

The University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL) department of chemistry is at the forefront of chemistry education and research. It immerses its students in research as both undergraduates and graduates and is dedicated to establishing a culture of safety.  Personal protective equipment (PPE) included gloves and goggles for all students.  However, outfitting nearly 800 students a semester with lab coats can be a daunting task. From managing inventory to laundering lab coats to outfitting students before every class, extending the lab coat program to that many students would require a level of time and effort UNL could not expend.  After implementing a Garment Dispensing program with Cintas, the department can now outfit upwards of 780 students a semester with lab coats. This level of compliance is already paying dividends. Find out how UNL’s chemistry department is doing since implementing the program.
