Safeopedia Explains Eyewash Cup

Eyewash cups can be reusable or disposable and are made of plastic, glass, or paper. The cup's design and storage allow it to avoid contamination and remain sanitary so that it can safely come into contact with the user's eye without causing any further complications.

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 eyewash kits.
