Eye wash stations

Work areas where hazardous materials are handled always present dangers to personnel and a possible consequence is eye contamination.  The first 10 to 15 seconds after exposure to a hazardous substance, especially a corrosive substance, are critical. Delaying treatment, even for a few seconds, may cause serious injury. Eye wash stations provide on-the-spot decontamination allowing workers to flush away hazardous substances that can cause injury.

The benefits:

  • Quick help in emergencies
  • Simple and reliable operation
  • Ergonomically shaped

Accidental chemical exposures can still occur even with good engineering controls and safety precautions. As a result, it is essential to look beyond the use of goggles, face shields, and procedures for using personal protective equipment. Eye wash stations are a necessary backup to minimize the effects of accident exposure to chemicals and hazardous substances.

Immediate action for accidents

In case of exposure, the eye has to be rinsed immediately. A doctor must also be notified immediately who will advise on further action to be taken. The eye rinsing should be continued when transporting the injured employee using mobile eye wash stations or eye rinse bottles. Eye rinse bottles are designed with ergonomically shaped trays which make the eye lids stay open during the rinsing process.
