Standard Operating Procedures
While running a potentially dangerous reaction (toxicity, fire, etc), you are not allowed to leave the lab or the building. Also, the chemistry should be clearly indicated on the hood door or on an open page in your lab book. If there is a problem (like hoods shutting down unexpectedly..), at least this way we have a better chance to avoid accidents.
