Shaping Smarter Regulations

Define "Suitable Facilites" for Emergency Eye/ Body Wash

Add notation that “suitable facilities” shall meet the requirements for emergency showers and eye/face wash equipment in accordance with ANSI Z 358.1. Also, that a “personal eye wash” does not meet the requirements of a quick drenching eye or body wash, but may be used while moving an individual to a suitable facility. Too often an eye wash bottle (personal eye wash) or standalone eye wash station not meeting the requirements of ANSI Z358.1 is all an employer provides where employees are exposed to injurious corrosives.
