Ventilation is key to safety in any darkroom space, even with a high quality fitted respirator. Some important safety basics can be found in a great book: Overexposure: Health Hazards in Photography By Susan D. Shaw, Monona Rossol. It can likely be found in a library near you.

Good luck and invest in ventilation as much as you can afford.

In trying to keep costs to a minnimum, I would like to avoid having to install anything unnecessary, but I also don't want to expose myself to fumes and whatnot. Would wearing a respirator be a sufficient safeguard against using chemicals in a space like this?
