Excerpt from "Additional clarification of using ANSI Z358.1 as guidance to comply with 1910.151(c)."
Which ANSI standard does OSHA enforce, ANSI Z358.1-1990 or ANSI Z358.1-1998? Is OSHA informing its compliance staff to not issue a citation when an employer's eyewash and shower are no longer suitable, i.e., in conformance with ANSI Z358.1-1998? If so, what is the rationale, since the eyewash or shower would no longer be suitable according to industry standards?
