It's the start of the summer student season right about now, and I think it would be great to get them into the habit of wearing PPE in the lab. Wouldn't it be great if we could show everyone that PPE is a normal happy part of your day? (i.e. positive peer pressure)

So I'm declaring June 4 to be Lab PPE Day. I request that people who are interested send pictures of themselves in lab PPE to LabPPEDay -at- gmail/dot/com. On June 4 (and a little bit earlier), those pictures will be posted on the official Lab PPE Day tumblr. 

If you wear your PPE and you consider it a smart, effective way to stay safe in the lab, would you send me a picture? If you don't want to show your face, creative means of showing that you wear your PPE would be acceptable too. 

So June 4, 2012 is Inaugural Lab PPE Day. Many happy returns!
