When I started with OSHA in the 70s, I remember the more senior personnel
telling me that OSHA did a study to determine how closely you had to put
eyewashes to achieve a thirty - second use rule. I think that the density
they came up with was an eyewash every 50 feet (or was it 20'?). I hope that
someone reading this message can find that study. 

Stay healthy,
