Safety Showers / Eyewash Stations
Legislation covering the installation, operation and maintenance of Emergency Safety Showers and Eye/Facewash equipment is becoming more stringent due to the increased use of chemicals or other substances hazardous to health. It is widely recognized that when an accident happens then the affected area must be flushed with clean, cool water for a period of 15 minutes to ensure all chemicals are removed. The casualty must then seek expert medical advice, and in any case of doubt they must go immediately to hospital with a suitable dressing covering the affected area. Typical of such occurrences are the spilling, splashing or spraying of acids, caustics, or other dangerous or corrosive agents. Other common hazards are fire and explosion. Where flammable liquids are present there is a hazard of clothing becoming ignited, only the prompt use of an Emergency Shower or Eye/Facewash Unit prevents major injury or death.
