For eyewashes that can be moved, it is necessary to arrange for a person to check whether the reserved water source is sufficient every day. At the same time, it is recommended that the reserve water source be replaced once a day to ensure water quality. An annual inspection of the eyewash device is required every year to see if the device is in good condition.
