/ Safety Showers in Laboratories
German term or phrase: Ausgußbecken
"Die Berufsgenossenschaft lehnt sich an diese Anforderungen an. Zusätzlich gibt diese vor, dass die Körperduschen am Ausgang installiert und hinreichend als Notdusche gekennzeichnet sein müssen. Dies gilt auch für Augenduschen, die möglichst in der Nähe der Körperdusche oder am ***Ausgussbecken*** installiert und als Augenspüleinrichtung erkennbar sein sollten."

From a text about safety showers in laboratories.

The dictionaries are no help on either "Ausgußbecken" or "Ausgießbecken" (although I don't have Ernst or DeVries, so maybe one of them might have this?) TIA for any assistance you can provide.

I'm fairly certain that this is just your plain old "Guss", which is a sink.

I like nothing better than when there is a clearcut and simple solution. Thank you very much indeed for that Gisela. Thanks also to Heike and David for the Langenscheidt and Ernst references respectively.
