(Please forgive me if this is a repeat question. . .)

I am sending a request to the group for assistance in locating any U.S.  regulations, design standards, codes with regard to providing Ground Fault Circuit Interuptor  (GFCI) protection (in Laboratories) for electrical outlets located within the vicinity of eyewashes, and/or sinks.  Additionally, are laboratory fume hoods (with water and drains supplied) provided with such protection (in addition to emergency power shut-off switches).  

I would appreciate hearing from this group's experience.

Any history, background or references would be much appreciated.  Please reply directly to chinniat**At_Symbol_Here**
