Eye/Face Wash Station Requirements

An eye/face wash station is a device used to irrigate and flush both the face and the eyes. There are two types of eye/face wash stations: plumbed and self-contained. ANSI requirements for installation include:

Heads

  • Installed so the fluid flow pattern is no less than 33 inches but no greater than 53 inches from the work surface
  • Positioned 6 inches from wall or nearest obstruction
  • Large heads to cover both eyes and face or regular size eye wash heads plus a face spray ring
  • Deliver 3 GPM tepid flushing fluid for 15 minutes at 30 psi (plumbed units only)
  • Deliver 3 GPM tepid flushing fluid for 15 minutes
  • Heads and flushing fluid units must be protected from airborne contaminants and the removal of any protective device(s) must not require a separate motion by the user

Valves

  • Activate in one second or less
  • Stay-open valve
  • Valve remains on until the user shuts it off

Installation

  • Located in an area that requires no more than 10 seconds to reach (consult a medical professional to determine the appropriate distance for harsh acids and caustics; high hazard=closer distance)
  • Located in a well-lit area and identified with a sign
  • Located on the same level as the hazard
  • Path of travel must be free of obstructions
  • If shut-off valves are installed in the supply line for maintenance purposes, provisions must be made to prevent unauthorized shut off

Maintenance and Training

  • A plumbed eye/face wash station must be activated weekly to verify proper operation
  • Gravity-fed units must be inspected weekly and maintained according to the manufacturer’s instructions
  • All employees who might be exposed to a chemical splash must be trained in the use of the equipment
  • All eye/face wash stations must be inspected annually to make sure they meet ANSI Z358.1 requirements
