Selecting A Lab Coat
A lab coat is worn by people in many professions. It could be someone who works in a doctor's office and needs to have a professional appearance, or it could be someone who works in a lab and needs to have the clothing and skin protected from liquids that are used on a daily basis.
There are a few guidelines that can be used when selecting a lab coat.
While color might not be important in some career fields, when you are choosing a lab coat, you should look for something that will give the best name possible to the company. Most hospitals, labs and doctor’s offices want workers to wear white coats. These give a sterile look while making sure everyone has the same appearance. Some floors of the hospital, such as the pediatric floor, might allow workers to wear coats that have playful designs in order to make patients feel comfortable. A dentist office is another environment where you might be able to wear a coat that has colors and patterns instead of wearing one that is all white.
