We are thinking about converting a portion of our Instrument Room to a 
Faculty Office.  This will however take out one of our two exits for the 
room.  The room is approximately 13 ft. x 32 ft., and we generally don't 
allow wet chemistry to occur in the Instrument Room.   There are flammable 
gas tanks in the room.   Is one exit sufficient or is there specific 
regulations that I might look at which would stipulate one exit is not 
I need to convince our administration that safety is an issue.

thank you,
