Eyewash Station/Drench Hose is Not Tested on a Weekly Basis

Audit findings: Eyewash station/Drench Hose is not tested on a weekly basis 

Adverse consequence(s): Injury to the eye due to inability to rinse corrosive or toxic chemicals from the eye

Corrective action: Eyewash stations and drench hoses must be activated regularly to ensure that clear, fresh water is available. Laboratory staff must test the station weekly, and document compliance at or near the station. Several vendors provide pre-printed tags for this purpose.
