Subject: Definition of Acceptable Distance to a Safety Eyewash/Shower

The ANSI Z358.1-1990 standard specified the distance to a safety 
eyewash/shower be 100 feet or 10 seconds travelling time or 100 feet. 
The 2004 version of the standard specifies 10 seconds.

How do you define acceptable distance?
*  By time only (10 secs.)
*  By 10 secs./100 ft., or
*  By 10 secs./A distance other than 100 ft.

Please advise.
