Where should eyewash stations be located?

There should be an easily accessible eyewash station within 10 seconds or 55 feet of a known hazard. This way, if someone is exposed to a hazard and gets a harmful substance in their eye, they won’t have to wait longer than 10 seconds to flush their eyes. This can be helpful in mitigating possible injuries.
