Effective 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.
