Eye Wash Cup

Definition - What does Eye Wash Cup mean?

An eye wash cup is a first aid item designed to flush out particles or chemical compounds that are trapped or have splashed into the eye, or to wash away dried mucus or secretions. It is made of different kinds of glass, plastic or paper and is designed in such a way as to avoid outside contamination and remain sanitary for contact with the human eye. It works with ophthalmic solutions found in first aid kits.

Safeopedia explains Eye Wash Cup

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) provide federal regulations and standards for the design, testing and use of eye wash kits. If designing first aid equipment like eye wash kits or providing first aid kits to staff in a business, it is important to comply with OSHA and ANSI federal regulations and standards. This includes the nature of eyewash kits, the location of eyewash kits and the maintenance of eyewash stations.
