I searched the threads, but didn't find one that addressed my question. I'm new to this, and still picking through what my predecessor did and why... (I'm fairly good at reading regulations, and I'm convinced that she made some things up as she went in an effort to be difficult)
We're having a "lively discussion" about sinks. We have a designated handwashing station that isn't used for anything else, which I get. We also have sinks in our mixing rooms where they're adding preservatives, citric acid, etc. They were told that they are not allowed to have soap or paper towels at those sinks, because they are not for hand washing. However, SDS states that if you spill potassium sorbate on your skin, you should wash with soap and water. Can I provide them with soap and paper towels at these "non-handwashing" sinks? Do I need signage that the sinks are not for handwashing? How can I make this work for the employees that are actually doing the mixing, and still follow the regulations?
Or - I'll happily accept "you can't do that, and this is why."
