2 Rev. C Ref. 9.0 Page 2 of Protective clothing. Not regulated individually. Protective clothing equipment includes lab coats, tyvec suits, fully encapsulating and non encapsulating suits, aprons, leggings, sleeve protectors, flame/fire retardant coveralls, and cooling garments Note: Respiratory protection and Hearing protection will be addressed in a separate SOP DEFINITIONS: Carcinogen A substance or agent that can cause cancer Corrosive A substance or agent that can cause significant damage to skin and mucus membranes including burns Cryogenic The use of extremely low temperatures Degradation The loss of or change in the fabric's chemical resistance or physical properties due to exposure to chemicals, use, or ambient conditions (e.g., sunlight) Hypothermia The lowering of internal body temperature that may cause cell damage and serious injury, even death Nuisance Dust Dust which contains no toxic materials no asbestos and less than 1% silica Penetration The movement of chemicals through zippers, stitched seams or imperfections (e.g., pinholes) in a protective clothing material Permeation The process by which a chemical dissolves in and/or moves through a protective clothing material on a molecular level Toxic A chemical or agent that has a poisoning effect on an organism. 5.0 PROGRAM (COMPONENTS): 5.1. Hazard Assessment A written hazard assessment must be completed for all tasks that require the use of PPE to prevent injury or illness from contact with physical, chemical, or biological hazards Hazard assessments will be completed using QCFM 594. The Supervisor will be responsible for ensuring that an initial evaluation and completion of the hazard assessments for any new chemical, task, or operation that requires the use of PPE is completed New Hazard Assessments will be forwarded to EHS for review and approval before implementing the new procedure Hazard assessments for all presently identified hazards are located on the Jacksonville EHS Sitebuilder site LAB COATS AND PROTECTIVE CLOTHING Medtronic Xomed Jacksonville, FL employees working in laboratories and manufacturing may be required to wear lab coats or protective clothing as specified in the hazard assessments for the specific work area Lab coats and protective clothing are prohibited in cafeterias, restrooms, conference rooms, and administrative areas Additional protective clothing (ie. Tyvec suits, aprons, etc.) may be required as specified in the hazard assessments for tasks which require greater physical, chemical or biological protection Chemical Protection Selection Criteria - When selecting personal protective equipment the following criteria should be evaluated: Concentration of the Chemical Physical State - The physical state of a chemical determines the exposure route and potential for toxicity Length of Exposure - The length of time a material is exposed to a chemical increases the probability of breakthrough. It should be kept in mind that during permeation testing, usually a pure (100% composition) liquid is placed in direct contact with the material producing a worst-case situation Abrasion - The use of leather gloves and a heavy apron over regular protective clothing will prevent damage to the PPE and protect against exposures during manual material handling Dexterity required to perform the necessary tasks Garments are selected for use by their resistance to permeation, degradation, and penetration. Charts are available from most manufacturers indicating the resistance of their products to degradation, permeation or penetration of a variety of chemicals Ability to Decontaminate

3 Rev. C Ref. 9.0 Page 3 of Climatic Conditions - Protective clothing add a burden of additional weight, restriction of movement as well as limiting natural cooling, contributing to heat stress. Some material act differently when they are very hot or very cold Types of Protective Material - The following material are generally used in protective garments: Cellulose or paper Natural and synthetic fibers (Tyvek, Nomex) Eastomers (Polyethylene, Saran, Polyvinyl chloride, Neoprene, Butyl rubber, Chlorapel, Viton) 5.3. EYE AND FACE PROTECTION Eye and/or face protection (safety glasses, goggles, face shields) shall be required where there is a reasonable probability of injury that can be prevented by such equipment. Eye protection equipment referred to includes protection against impact, penetration, chemical and biological splashes, and dusts All eye and face protective equipment shall comply with ANSI Z87.1, "American National Standard Practice for Occupational and Educational Eye and Face Protection," which is incorporated by reference as specified in Sec The protective equipment must be appropriately selected for the hazard. Hazard assessments have been conducted for all identified hazards and are available on the EHS Sitebuilder Medtronic Xomed Jacksonville, FL employees requiring correction (prescription) lenses will be provided prescription safety glasses with side shields.

Visitor glasses are available at the entrance to the designated areas HAND PROTECTION (GLOVES) Hand protection should be used when there is a potential for skin absorption of harmful substances, contact with potentially infectious materials, cuts or lacerations, abrasions, punctures, chemical burns, thermal burns and temperature extremes The hand protection must be appropriately selected for the type of hazard that may be encountered. The selection process should include an evaluation of the tasks to be performed, conditions, duration of use and the identified hazards. Selection guides for chemical use can be found are available on the EHS Sitebuilder FOOT PROTECTION Foot protection shall be required when there is a reasonable probability of injury without the protection Medtronic Xomed Jacksonville, FL employees working in the following departments will be required to wear safety shoes: Shipping department, Facility and Maintenance department, and Raw Materials department Medtronic Xomed Jacksonville, FL employees requiring safety shoes will be provided shoes via our approved vendor.
