If flammable and/or combustible liquids are stored there, I think the chemical storage needs 6 room exchanges per hour, has to have back up systems, and a bunch of other stuff. See 1910.106(d)(3)(iv), (v) and (4). Monona

I'm the CHO at a small private college. How do others at similar facilities ensure chemistry labs and strorerooms do not become dangerously hot? We of course have central air but sometimes even with that the rooms get warm, so we intalled window AC units to supplement. However, recently our power went out for several hours due to a thundertorm and neither system worked, resulting in high temperatures which of course is such a concern for volatile compounds. I learned of the power outage several hours after it occurred.
We are now talking of purchasing a generator. Do any of you have this same worry? Do you have a generator?
Thanks for feedback.
