Proper Lab Shoes

Yep, ladies and gentlemen, it's time for the annual reminder of what is proper footwear for use in the laboratory.footwear

Remember:  no open-toed shoes are permitted in the lab.  This will ensure your feet are protected from stray hazardous materials spills.

I know that it is very warm in the summer and sandals provide much-needed comfort.  You can wear them outside all you want, but if you do, be sure to keep a pair of closed-toed shoes at your desk to change into when you enter the lab.
