New restaurant - do you need to have eye washing stations?

#1

We have 2 eye washing stations in the kitchen that already have instruction signs, but do we need anything else?

Yes, in short and they need to be marked. Eyewash stations should be located on the same level as the hazard in a well-lit area that is properly marked as an emergency eyewash station. It must be positioned within 10 seconds (about 55 feet) of the hazard along a path that is free of obstructions. An obstruction-free path is critical because the vision of injured workers is impaired.
