To all concerned:

Sorry, but Rob Toreki's helpful suggestions do NOT apply to students. 
That is, the OSHA regulations, even the lab standard cannot be enforced
on students.  It applies in an enforceable manner only to paid employees.
 so, as Rob correctly suggests, the male and female professors and TA's
are to wear pants, but as far as OSHA is concerned, the kiddies may wear
whatever they like.

PS:  I would hope of course, that the Profs and TA's would indeed enforce
their own local requirements for proper attire for students in the lab.
