Lab Personal Protective Equipment Assessments

Lab representatives can use AIMS to conduct personal protective equipment (PPE) self-assessments of activities conducted in their whole lab group, specific rooms, specific processes, or other segments of lab operations.

Lab representatives can identify other PPE required by labs, departments, or schools beyond basic Harvard-wide AIMS specifications. Principal Investigators (PI) and Core Facility Managers can approve assessments in AIMS or offline by signing a printed assessment.

PIs, Core Managers, or designees must review and update lab PPE assessments at least annually or when significant changes in processes or material uses happen in their labs. Learn more about the Harvard Lab PPE Policy.


You can instantly generate inspection results and reports from targeted electronic checklists. Corrective action and inspection report access are automatically sent to designated personnel and are always accessible online.

Corrective actions are managed online and reports are updated in real time. Area managers can review corrective action statuses at any time to ensure timely completion.
