All - I would like to let you know that there will be a APPA is sponsoring a Town Hall tomorrow to discuss the status of either reaffirmation or revision of ANSI/ISEA Z-358.1 (American National Standard for Emergency Eyewash and Shower Equipment ). APPA - Leadersip in Educational Facilities is a global "leader in professional development programs, credentialing, research, publications, networking, and information services for the educational facilities profession."

In December 2016, CHAS sent Mary Beth Koza and myself to the ISEA meeting in Alexandria, VA to represent the membership and present some ideas/concerns for them to consider in the 2019 revision. At this time, it appears that ISEA is prepared to make a decision to reccommend that the standard be reaffirmed as is rather than updating it to include any of the concerns which were brought to their attention in 2016. APPA is concerned about reaffirmation of the standard without considering updates based on some of the valid concerns that were brought before them in 2016.

The webinar tomorrow, Friday, March 13th from 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm EDT, we will present an overview of the issues at hand and go over the concerns that we outlined to ISEA at the December 2016 meeting. You can register for the APPA webinar at

Let me know if you have any questions about this,



We, the willing, led by the unknowing, are doing the impossible for the ungrateful. We have done so much, for so long, with so little, we are now qualified to do everything with nothing. Teresa Arnold paraphrased from Konstantin Josef Jire?ek (1854 ?? 1918)
