Emergency Safety Shower and Eye Wash Training

OSHA’s 1910.151(c) is the regulation requiring emergency safety showers and eye washes be placed in certain work areas. Specifically, it says:

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.

In addition to that brief passage, there are 11 standard interpretations for 1910.151(c). And, though it doesn’t have the power of law, ANSI Z358.1 is a good resource full of industry best practices and guidelines.

In addition to having emergency eyewash and safety showers on site when they are called for, it’s important to train your workers how to use them properly too. Our Safety Showers and Eyewashes training course, featuring 3-D animations, practice questions, and a scored test, is a valuable training tool to help you get your workers up to speed on safety showers and eyewashes. Check out a sample below, see all the titles in our safety training library here, and contact us if you have more questions.
