Eyewash Station Emergency Shower

Eyewash Station in Use

Eyewash Stations

  • Gravity fed stations
  • Plumbed stations and emergency showers

Many work environments require a primary eyewash station, meaning that the station will provide 15 minutes of continuous water flow at a rate of .4 gpm.

Cal First Aid can assist customers with determining the proper type and placement of eyewash stations. ANSI and CalOSHA have unique eyewash station requirements (Title 8, Section 5162 [CCR/8-5162] / ANSI Z358.1).

The most common trigger for a primary station is an electric forklift charger.
