Latex-Safe Product Use


Delta College requires that only latex safe gloves, balloons, and promotional products be used on the premises, including off-campus centers and Delta sponsored events, to avoid potential related risks and allergic reactions to employees, students and visitors.


Delta College values employees, students and visitors and seeks to reduce risks associated with latex allergies and the related serious and potentially fatal conditions. 

Latex gloves and balloons are two items with greater exposures that shall be replaced effective January 1, 2011, by ordering latex-safe gloves and balloons. Because other items may contain latex, it is important to check manufacturing materials. Contact Purchasing for assistance on ordering these products.

Contact the Human Resources department for guidance if needed.
