How many eyewash stations are required?

This will entirely depend on the size of the workplace and the number of personnel working in the targeted areas. Ideally, an authorized person will inspect the facility to determine how many eyewash stations are necessary. Workplaces where workers handle hazardous chemicals are required to have an eyewash and a body drenching equipment no more than 100 feet from the work station/s. In case of emergencies, employees should be able to reach and use the eyewash and body drenching equipment within 10 seconds.
