Q: Is there a retention requirement for eyewash weekly testing logs? One source I've read indicates at least 2 years.
A: You need to retain all evidence that documents you have complied with regulatory standards as long as your authorities having jurisdiction tells you to do so. Having said that, not all AHJs actually say how long to retain documents. I know Joint Commission expects to see three years’ worth of documents to prove compliance with their standards. Other accreditors are not as clear. My advice is to never throw away any documents… keep them for the life of the building. You should be able to purge your files and box up the documents and place them in storage somewhere.
