For new construction, renovation, and design of chemistry laboratories, eyewash stations must be installed in a more scientific manner. Instalação must comply with current national guidelines, policies, laws, and laboratory regulations, and meet environmental protection requirements. When installing eyewash stations in laboratories, hazardous substances must be separated from ordinary sewage and discharged separately. Eyewash stations must be installed within 15 meters or 10 seconds of reach from highly toxic chemicals, explosives, compressed gases and other liquefied substances, flammable liquids, self-combustible materials, and materials that are flammable when exposed to moisture, oxidizers, organic peroxides, toxic substances, and corrosive substances, with no obstacles around them. Appropriate eyewash stations should also be installed in areas where highly toxic chemicals, chemicals that are easily made into drugs, chemicals that are easily made into explosives, radioactive substances, laboratory waste, resíduos perigosos, laboratory solid waste, radioactive waste, general laboratories, specialized laboratories, and auxiliary rooms are located.

Safety and Protection Specifications for Eyewash Stations in Chemistry Laboratories
For laboratories using strong acids, strong bases, and chemicals with burn and corrosive hazards, the floor where the laboratory is located should be equipped with corresponding eyewash stations and emergency shower rooms. The number of installations must be communicated with the relevant safety department. The location of eyewash stations and laboratory shower rooms must be coordinated with the local safety department or the internal safety department of the enterprise in accordance with the relevant operativo procedimentos. The supporting standards for eyewash stations must be determined according to the planned chemicals in use.
