Ensure Workplace Safety with an Annual Eyewash Station Inspection
An annual eyewash station inspection is a critical part of workplace safety to ensure that the eyewash station is working correctly in the event of an emergency. The eyewash station is essential in the event of a hazardous chemical splash or other eye injuries, providing immediate flushing of the eyes to reduce the risk of injury.
During the annual inspection, a trained professional will check the eyewash station's water flow, temperature, and location to ensure that it meets the standards set by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI). The inspector will also check for any damage or wear on the equipment and ensure that the area around the eyewash station is clear and accessible.
Failing to conduct an annual inspection or neglecting to maintain the eyewash station properly can result in significant fines and legal liabilities if an accident occurs. By conducting an annual eyewash station inspection, companies can ensure the safety of their employees and comply with regulatory requirements.
