Not having an emergency eye wash station available for the protection of your employees’ eyes is one of the most issued OSHA citations. According to the OSHA standards, specifically §1910.151(c), eyewash stations need to be located no more than 10 seconds within the work area, and where a strong acid or caustic is used, the station should be immediately adjacent to the hazard area. In addition, the eye wash stations should contain enough water to provide for 15 minutes of continuous use.
Eye Wash Stations Are Critical
Protecting eyesight is very important, thus making eye wash stations critical when working around chemicals. Most chemical work environments require their employees to wear safety glasses, but we all know accidents can happen and eyewash stations provide an effective means of emergency treatment for when chemicals come into contact with the eyes. The first fifteen seconds following exposure are critical and having a professional eyewash station is just what you need!
Along with emergency drench showers and other safety products, All Safety Products, Inc. can provide you with a professional eyewash station and equipment. All Safety Products, Inc. carries a complete line of eyewash stations, including portable, wall mount, heat-traced drench showers, faucet mount and floor mount models. Our gravity flow portable wash station meets OSHAs 15-minute flow time requirement so your people can rest assured that they will get the aid they need in case of an emergency, and OSHA will be happy!
Eye Wash Vs. Drench Shower
In addition to an eye wash station, you may also want to invest in an emergency drench shower. This would help in the event an employee was exposed to harmful chemicals outside of the eye area. This type of prevention tool is also effective for managing clothing fires and removing contaminants.
The drench showers, wall mount, floor/pedestal mount models we sell meet the flow rates established by ANSI Z358.1-1998. They come in either ABS plastic or stainless steel.
Our gravity flow portable eye wash station (model 5135) meets the 15 minute flow time required and is made of a durable ABS plastic. Eye wash preservative (5136) for the portable eye wash station is also available to extend the life of the water supply to 90 days.
