We have our eye wash/shower units in the halls just outside the teaching labs. A couple of them have the paddle for the eye wash right next to the door into the lab, and they frequently get bumped by students (back packs) entering or leaving the lab, which then alerts campus safety and involves multiple people being alerted that there is not an emergency.

A proposed solution is to move the paddle to the left side of the eye wash. Does anyone know of any reason why that would not be a reasonable solution? There are eye wash stations at each sink inside the labs, but no shower units inside any of the labs.
