Subject: Length of aisles between islands

Our facilities manager for our College of Medicine labs asked me this  
question, which I thought DCHAS-L might have some helpful input on:

Does anyone know of a "regulation" which would require limiting the  
length of a lab peninsula (meaning the lab benches create only one  
means of egress from the enclosed area) to require an island station  
above that length? While such a rule makes sense, I am unable to find  
any supporting information. Thanks for your assistance.

Thanks for any information.

- Ralph
