    OSHA 1910.151(c) states "where the eyes or body of any person may be exposed to injurious corrosive materials, suitable facilities for quick drenching or flushing of the eyes and body shall be provided within the work area for immediate emergency use." The American National Standard for Emergency Eyewash and Shower Equipment (ANSI/ISEA Z358.1) was updated in 2009.

    For selected articles offering guidance on eyewash station equipment and discussing ANSI/ISEA Z358.1, please contact the Library with your fax number at library@nsc.org or (630) 775-2199.
