Dress Code

Anyone entering the NBTC labs must be dressed appropriately for lab work. This means no chemical-accessible skin from shoulders to feet. To enter the NBTC labs, you must be wearing:

Shoes: Shoes must completely cover the entire foot. No sandals, open weave shoes, ballet flats, or other shoes that expose the top of the foot.

Pants: must be full-length from waist to ankle. No shorts, no skirts (without pants underneath), no short pants. No tight pants such as yoga pants, leggings, or tights. Pants should not be tucked into shoes.

Shirts: must completely cover the body from shoulder to top of the pants. A lab coat must be worn over any midriff-bearing tops or sleeveless shirts.

Final determination of the safety of any piece of clothing is at the discretion of NBTC staff.



Visitors are not allowed to be in NBTC labs without being accompanied by NBTC staff or a trained user. Visitors are only allowed to observe lab work, not to run instrumentation or perform experiments.
