I wasn't aware of that ANSI/AIHA Z9.5-2012 for Laboratory Ventilation is now available, so I thought that some of the DCHAS-L members may have missed it as well. Details at

Laboratory Ventilation
Every laboratory will benefit from this outline of laboratory ventilation requirements and practices. Chapters include performance tests, air cleaning, preventive maintenance, and work practices. Five appendices covering definitions, terms and units are included. Those involved in laboratory management, including chemical hygiene hygiene officers, campus and institutional health and safety staff, industrial hygienists, and environmental health and safety staff will benefit from this standard.
