Whether they be acids, alkalis, solvents, waxes, peroxides, poisons or hot materials, they represent a risk in everyday handling, packing, transporting and using. Accidental chemical exposures can still occur even with safety precautions. As a result, it is essential to look beyond the use of goggles, face shields, and procedures for using personal protective equipment. Emergency showers and eyewash stations are a necessary backup to minimise the effects of accident exposure to chemicals.
Emergency eyewash and safety shower stations serve as the first aid treatment for employees in case of accidents when handling more dangerous contaminants in their workplace. iQSafety offers Haws eyewash stations and safety showers which provide a complete ANSI complaint safety solution with the addition of enhanced victim comfort and injury reductions.
