Allison, I've never heard of any such requirement. The only requirements have to do with vapor exposure. If the levels are below the OSHA standards it is ok.

Subject: [Histonet] square footage for formalin

Good afternoon,
We have inspectors here and they are questioning the size of the room in the operating room where they keep their 5 gallon cube.  Does anyone know of any square footage requirements for a room that where formalin is kept and used?

Thank you in advance
