The last school I was in had no floor drain under any emergency shower. The
reason given was that you didn't want a chemical spill or a radioactive
substance to get into the plumbing. The result was that a few times a year
someone would hit the shower or eyewash station with a backpack and there
would be a mess on the floor to be cleaned up.
