Updated MIOSHA Instruction for Emergency Eyewash / Shower
MIOSHA’s instruction for Emergency Eyewash and Showers (MIOSHA-STD-07-1R3) was Updated on June 27, 2016. While there were not many changes, we wanted to review some of the important elements.
The only significant change is concerning the Section on Custodial / Housekeeping Activities which was revised to eliminate the requirement for personal eyewash units and personal protective equipment (PPE) in the traveling portion of the job. For example, traveling from the sink where cleaning solutions are prepared (e.g., janitors closet) to where the cleaning is being performed (e.g., bathrooms, production floor, etc.).
