I was using Google to find a graphic image and one thing lead to another and I found this little gem:
PROPER ATTIRE IN THE EXPERIMENT HALL
Proper attire for work in the experiment hall includes closed-toes, covered-heel shoes and long pants. Sandals are not acceptable. Skirts may be worn if a lab coat is also worn.
Given that lab coats usually end at about the top of the knee this can’t be because they don’t want your legs showing or because they want to protect your shins from biohazards. So maybe it’s okay to spill chemicals on your pants but not on your skirt? Because this is a uni-sex environment?
What do you think?
