GUIDANCE ON R069-20 RELATED TO EMERGENCY EYEWASH STATIONS

Nevada OSHA adopted regulation R069-20 which included an adoption by reference of ANSI Z358.1-2014 for Emergency Eyewash and Shower Equipment. This regulation became effective April 11, 2022. Prior to this regulation, Nevada OSHA primarily cited non-compliance with emergency eye wash and shower equipment requirements under 29 CFR 1910.151(c) which states:
 
“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.”
 
By adopting ANSI Z358.1-2014, Nevada OSHA has identified the minimum design and installation criteria necessary to meet the definition of suitable facilities which is otherwise undefined in federal statute. Additionally, training requirements have been introduced as part of this adoption.
