I am at a small Catholic liberal arts university and I can vouge for the 
fact that you still may need the rule.  We have an older professor who 
still pipets by mouth but thankfully not in front of students.

Subject: [DCHAS-L] Pipetting rule

During our annual review of safety rules and printed mataerials, one of 
my young colleagues asked me if it is still necessary to include the 
rule "Never pipet by mouth." She has never seen it done, and couldn't 
imagine anyone who would EVER think of doing it. I guess I could ask the 
same about the "No eating or drinking" rule.

Any thoughts?
