The first 10 seconds after exposure to a hazardous substance, especially a corrosive substance, are critical. Delaying treatment, even for a few seconds, may cause serious injury. Emergency eyewash stations allow workers to quickly flush away accidental chemical exposures.

Using an eyewash station is considered a first-aid measure. Be sure to do a hazard assessment to determine the hazards associated with chemicals in your workplace and how the eyewash station will be used in an emergency. Learn more in Oregon OSHA’s Eyewash and safety showers fact sheet.​
