HSE sponsors a variety
of instructor-led and online training course options and dates.
Now is a great time to confirm that you are familiar
with the selection, placement, testing, and training requirements on
emergency eyewashes and safety showers. All employees and students who
use, or may be exposed to hazardous chemicals, shall be trained on the
hazards associated with the chemicals and the emergency eyewash and
shower equipment in use at their locations and in adjacent hallways.
This training is the responsibility of the person in charge of the work
and/or classroom area; whether it be a laboratory, pharmacy, custodial
closet, nursing unit, or clinical setting. The training shall be documented
in an Emergency Equipment Training Log. If an area is remodeled and
a different model eyewash is installed, the entire staff shall be trained
to use the new model and this novel equipment training will also be
documented on the training log.
