2 Should I have a site-specific map of the stations? Is maintenance required? What are four common errors for self- contained portable eyewash stations? Yes, since they are portable and require maintenance weekly. Insure to have a prepared station before potentially hazardous work starts. Check with your stations Maintenance Guide to flush weekly, and record. 1. Failure to have station ready prior to an emergency. 2. Failure to replace tank water every 90 days, or 60 days e.g. if airborne dust like sawdust, or lime dust is common. 3. Because clean water is critical wound wash, dont compromise your 1st Aid.

3 Topics Suggestions What do I do when the station empties? Once the 15 minute flush ends or when the victim is moved, continue to flush using 500mL or 1L bottles of eyewash. Even when transporting the victim keep flushing the eyes. You cannot use too much eyewash rinse. Continuous flushing is critical wound care.
