[Histonet] fume hood regulation

From:Stacey Burton

I am currently installing 12 fume hoods into 12 laboratories.  I have been informed, by the installer, of some new fume hood safety standards set by OSHA.
I have been told in order to be OSHA compliant, I must have an audible and visual alarm on each fume hood that will react if the fume hood fails to work properly.
Have any of you heard of this policy?  If so, will you please educate me on these new standards?  I want to install the alarms if it is indeed a new rule of compliance; however, I could do without the costly expense if this is only a rumor.
Thanks for your input,
