Subject: Safety showers and eyewashes

I am doing some safety inspections for a start up private laboratory.   
There is no documentation on the individual safety eywash/showers  
indicating when they were last inspected.  The building facilitty  
manager insists he has the documantation on his computer but has  
steadfastly refused to share this information when a safety inspection  
is performed.  Is there any documentation that requires emergency  
eyewash/shower stations to have tags indicating their last inspection?  
  Any information would be helpful.  I suspect that the inspections  
occur on a random basis, if at all.  Thanks
