NCRC Lab Occupants Now Required to Complete Monthly Eyewash Checks

January 1, 2022 12:00 AM
This requirement applies to NCRC lab occupants and impacts MOST eyewash devices

Picture of eyewash stations NOT included in new requirement that NCRC labs complete monthly checksEffective January 1, 2022, the required task of monthly eyewash checks for most eyewash devices in NCRC labs will be the responsibility of lab occupants to perform.

The exceptions will be those units (examples pictured at right) that are a combination eyewash/shower station or are a recessed, in-wall style and use a custom device to perform the monthly checks.

Devices that will continue to be checked by Medical School Facilities (MSF) will have a blue MSF sticker placed on the tag.

Any device with a tag that does not have the blue MSF sticker will be the responsibility of the lab to check. 

Please note that this change will not impact the current Clinical Pathology eyewash service model.


  • Questions about performing monthly eyewash checks should be directed to EHS Representative Shannon Weger at or (734) 763-3514.
  • Mechanical problems or missing/broken components should be called in for repair to the Facilities Service Center at (734) 647-2059.
