Beginning January 15, 2015, the UNC Department of Environment, Health and Safety is launching a PPE (personal protective equipment) safety campaign via digital boards around campus and posters mailed to the University’s principal investigators. The campaign – titled “What do you care about?” – features principal investigators as well as trainees such as graduate and undergraduate students talking about what drives them to wear PPE in their labs.
