Do eyewash stations have to be plumbed?

No. Both portable and plumbed eyewash stations are acceptable, as long as they have a constant supply of clean water and are placed in the right locations. However, according to ANSI Z358.1, plumbed eyewash stations do need to be activated every week for a long enough period to ensure that the eyewash station works and water is readily available.
