We have a set of 11 lab rules, the usual stuff, no eating, drinking etc. But I've added a rule 12 which is "Don't be a dick". If a student is messing about I put them down by simply saying "Rule 12!" ;)

Before we were acquired by a larger org, I was hired to a new company where (in addition to the normal documentation and payroll and tax info stuff) we had to sign an employee code of conduct document.

It was short and simple, something like 10 or 12 one to two sentence rules like those referenced above. Rule #4 came straight from the founder / CEO and it read: "Don't be an asshole." I smiled, signed, and turned in my paperwork confident I'd joined the right organization. 8-)
