 From a safety standpoint, I would highly recommend a secondary  

It will not only confirm that your safety controls are functioning  
properly, but also make the Students & Faculty more confident in  
their working environments.

This should apply in all facilities which utilize ventilated  
enclosures, and not specific to-in this case-Dominican University.
