IMPORTANT CONSIDERATIONS DURING EMERGENCY SHOWER AND EYEWASH SPECIFICATION AND INSTALLATION
The specifi cation and installation of emergency showers and eyewashes requires careful consideration of several factors, most of which are driven by the specifi c needs and risks of a given business as well as the requirements of ANSI Z358.1.
FIVE MAIN FACTORS TO CONSIDER
1] EQUIPMENT LOCATION
Per ANSI, emergency equipment must be located on the same level and within an unobstructed,10-second walk from a potential hazard. The number of showers/eyewashes available and their individual locations must be evaluated when determining installation locations.
2] ASSURE VISIBILITY
High visibility of safety equipment can be achieved with clear signage, proper lighting and the use of the color known as “safety green.” This color is used industrially to designate both the concept of
safety and the physical locations of fi rst aid and emergency response equipment, including drench showers and eyewashes.
3] PRODUCT SUITABILITY
When it comes to emergency response equipment, there is no shortage of available products. And with so many choices – oftentimes differentiated only by subtle differences – it’s
important to critically assess specifi c risks to determine the most suitable product. For example, specifying an eyewash in a chemical plant where liquids form
the general risk may not be the best solution. What if an acid or base is splashed onto a victim’s face, not just in his eyes? In that instance, an eye/face wash would have been the most
With recent product advancements such as fl ow controls and designs inspired by eye irrigation protocols used within the medical community, choosing the most suitable equipment also means
making a selection from the most current generation of products. Many of these have been designed to meet changes imposed in the Z358.1 Standard revision (2009).
4] TEMPERED WATER REQUIREMENT
The same ANSI revision also addresses tempered water. In its current form, Z358.1 requires that outlet water temperatures range from 60º F to below 100º F throughout the entire required
15-minute drench or irrigation cycle. Water that is too hot or too cold can have negative physical affects on a victim, including scalding,
hypothermia or shortened drench cycles. Providing tempered water is an often-overlooked requirement that can have serious legal and/or regulatory repercussions.
5] ASSURE PROPER MAINTENANCE
One of the implied responsibilities of specifying and installing emergency equipment is assuring a maintenance process designed to keep safety showers, eyewashes and associated system
components functioning optimally. ANSI requires a weekly activation, intended to assure proper operation and to fl ush out possible sediment, as well as a more detailed annual inspection.
Installing safety equipment in such a way as to facilitate these inspections will help assure proper maintenance.
CRITICALLY ASSESS RISKS：
There is no shortage of available products, assess specific risks to determine the most suitable product for your site
ANSI requires a range from 60º F to below 100º F throughout the entire required 15-minute drench or irrigation cycle.
PROPER INSTALLATION：can help facilitate maintenance and weekly ANSI testing.
Hazard & Location Checklist
The workplace is filled with hazards, so chances are your facility has some hazardous areas that require the proper Eyewash Flushing Stations. Emergency eyewash equipment is needed in areas where corrosive, chemical, bloodborne pathogens, or particulate hazards may be present. MSDS should always be referenced to determine the correct flushing requirements for chemicals used in the workplace. For more information regarding OSHA’s eyewash regulations and the ANSI Z358.1-2014 standard, please read our compliance guide here. The following checklists are provided for reference purposes only and may not be exhaustive, however, they should provide a good starting point to ensure that you are protecting your workers.

Eyewash Station Distance Requirements
Employee safety is an important responsibility that extends beyond simply having the right equipment. When an accident happens, the right equipment must be installed properly in order to provide the type of emergency treatment capable of avoiding serious injury.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) refers employers to The American National Standards Institute’s (ANSI) standard Z358.1 specifically to address minimum selection, installation, operation, and maintenance requirements.
The key components of ANSI/ISEA Z358.1 for eyewash measurements include:
Critical Dimensions for Plumbed and Self-Contained Eyewash Equipment
- Eyewash safety stations must be installed within 10 seconds or 55 feet from the hazard.
- The spray pattern must measure between 33”–53” from the floor the user will stand on (section 5.4.4).
- Nozzles or spray heads must be at least 6” away from a wall or any type of obstruction (section 5.4.4).
- An eyewash gauge should be used to determine the correct flow pattern (section 5.1.8).
Critical Dimensions for Plumbed and Self-Contained Emergency Showers
- Emergency shower safety stations must be installed within 10 seconds or 55 feet from the hazard.
- The showerhead must measure between 82”–96” from the floor the user will stand on (section 4.1.3).
- By the time the flushing water is 60” above the floor, the sprayhead pattern must measure 20” in diameter (section 4.1.4).
- The center of the sprayhead must measure at least 16” from obstructions (section 4.1.4).
- The activation valve distance from where the user stands must not exceed 69” (section 4.2).
Critical Dimensions for Plumbed and Self-Contained Eye/Face Wash Equipment
- Eye/face wash safety stations must be installed within 10 seconds or 55 feet from the hazard.
- The spray pattern must measure between 33”–53” from the floor the user will stand on (section 6.4.4).
- Nozzles or spray heads must be at least 6” away from a wall or any type of obstruction (section 6.4.4).
- An eyewash gauge should be used to determine the correct flow pattern (section 6.1.8).
