I made up an inspection sheet and have one of my student employees check all
the eyewash and shower stations on the first working day of the month.  They
initial the box next to the appropriate station.

Otherwise, the first employee each morning runs the eyewash in the
stockroom.  The first TA for each lab runs those eye washes.
