I can only offer advice from the U.S. perspective. The best resource is the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health Web site (, which provides checklists and guidance on selection of the appropriate safeguards for specific classes of chemicals and bio-hazards. The site also has links to specific manufactures that specialize in these designs (look in the working groups pages). In the pharmaceutical area, the standards would be found under a USP guidebook for the compounds.
