What are the standards and regulations for including glass in furniture? How do you know what is safe, what is acceptable? 

The Australian standard’s Glass committee, said that there is no Australian standard for the use of glass in furniture as it is too difficult to implement
and there has not been enough support for it. However if you require a guideline the AS1288-2006 might be suitable for this. 

The AFA advises that any glass in furniture should be between 6 and 10mm thick, which is more than adequate to be safe. Most standards for buildings require
6mm for safety reasons where necessary.
