Are eye wash stations required for areas where Sani-Cloth® Germicidal Disposable Wipes and Sani-Prime® Germicidal Spray are utilized?Show Answer
Eye wash stations are not required for areas where Sani-Cloth® Germicidal Disposable Wipes and Sani-Prime® Germicidal Spray are utilized as intended for surface disinfection. Although these products are classified as eye irritants, there is no OSHA or ANSI regulation that requires an eye wash station for eye irritants and therefore one not needed for these products. Handling of any chemical product, whether category 1, 2, 3, or 4, include using PPE when required, engineering controls if appropriate, and safe work practice controls to minimize any risk of exposure
