ISEA Seeking Reviewers for Emergency Eyewash Standard
The ANSI/ISEA Z358.1-2009 standard is being revised, with a new version to be published this year. ISEA is recruiting reviewers for the process.
The International Safety Equipment Association announced it is seeking reviewers to take part in the process of revising ANSI/ISEA Z358.1-2009, American National Standard for Emergency Eyewash and Shower Equipment , this year. ISEA's Feb. 5 notice says several types of reviewers outside the association are needed.
The standard specifies performance criteria for eyewash and shower flow rates, temperature delivery, drenching patterns, and maintenance.
Reviewers will submit comments and vote on the approval of the standard; if approved, it is submitted to ANSI for acceptance as an American National Standard. The reviewer categories are:
- Producer: A manufacturer of the product covered by the standard or components thereof
- User: An organization that uses, specifies, or purchases the product covered by the standard
- Government: An agency or department that has regulatory authority or other interest in the product
- General Interest: An organization that has a special interest in the standard due to safety, technical, or other requirements or an individual expert with knowledge in the areas covered by the standard, but who neither produces nor uses the products.
ISEA's Cristine Fargo (email@example.com) is the contact for those interested in participating in the review, expected to begin in late May.
