Why do you need to consider installing an eyewash station in your facility? Since OSHA does not require eyewash stations by industry, the need for an eyewash station should be determined by the chemicals that are used in an establishment. Wherever corrosive chemicals are being used, an eyewash station is very important for employee safety and health.
"The medical profession teaches and practices irrigating eyes by introducing flushing fluid at the inner corner of the eye -- adjacent to the nose -- letting it run across the eye to the outer edge. This is specifically done to avoid driving contaminants into the lacrimal punctum and the nasal cavity. The accepted medical practice is counter to the way most eyewashes operate and can result in further injury to the splash or blown-particulate injured victim. Axion MSR is the only eyewash product that duplicates the methodology used by and recommended by healthcare professionals."
