Eye Wash Stations
In the event of chemicals getting into the eyes, speed is of the essence. There may be as little as ten to 15 seconds before a corrosive substance does serious damage. Having quick access to an eye wash station can make all the difference between a full recovery and a life-changing injury. DENIOS IE stocks a wide range of eye wash stations.
Anyone who handles, uses or "only" stores hazardous substances cannot avoid it: the risk assessment. For 25 years it has been the central element in occupational health and safety. In our FAQs we have put together the answers to the most frequently asked questions on the subject of "Risk assessment for hazardous substances".
Explosion protection can quickly become an issue in all industries: Many hazardous substances that are handled on a daily basis harbour a corresponding hazard potential. Here you can find out what you need to know to get started with explosion protection.
Fighting chaos: With the 5S method to more occupational safety
The 5S method creates order and cleanliness in the workplace and thereby also increases occupational safety. Find out how disorder affects operational safety and how the 5S method helps you to reduce accident risks in our practical guide.
Stumbling, slipping, falling: so-called SRS accidents are the perennial favorite in accident statistics. According to a report by the German Social Accident Insurance (DGUV), one in 5 workplace accidents is due to slippery floors and tripping hazards. We present 5 measures that help to effectively prevent SRS accidents.
If a hazardous substance comes into contact with the eye, prompt treatment is necessary, so there should be an eye wash station available close to any areas where contact could take place. For the majority of the eye wash stations stocked at DENIOS IE, it needs to be somewhere that can connect with a water supply and in an area where it can be securely mounted. As well as wall-mounted eye wash stations, among the available options DENIOS IE also has the Eye and Face Shower to be secured to the floor.
In some circumstances, it may not be possible or necessary to have a permanent eye wash station. If chemicals are moved around large premises, for example, there may be occasions when the personnel are not close enough to an eye wash station to access it for prompt treatment. Or, perhaps if chemicals are only temporarily in an area, there may be no need for a fixed eye wash station. In those circumstances, a portable eye wash station is an ideal solution. Take a look at the range of Eye Wash Bottles for the options offered.
You can find different variants in our assortment:
Eye showers for wall, table or floor mounting
Hand-held eye shower or shower with catch basin (plastic or stainless steel)
One or two shower heads
Types of eye wash stations
There are several different types of eye wash stations. These include an Eye Shower, which is designed to be attached to a wall and provides a spray that can be directed comfortably into the eye. Other options include an Eye and Face Shower, which includes a basin, allowing the whole face to be washed. It is not always possible to attach an eye wash station to the water supply. If that is the case on your premises, take a look at the Eyewash Station with 60-litre Storage Container. It can be attached to a wall and filled with an eye wash solution.

What are the legal regulations and standards?
Safety at work is covered by a number of regulations, which can be bewildering. However, you can shop with confidence at DENIOS IE. As a leading provider of environmental health products, we make sure that our products are in compliance with the regulations, and all the eye wash kits comply with the latest EN 15154 regulation.
Eye wash stations and eye wash bottle stations need to be cleaned and inspected regularly to ensure that they are in good condition. It is recommended that they are checked at least once a month but check the manufacturer’s handbook to ensure that is sufficient for the model that you own. If any problems are noticed between inspections, make sure that your employees know how to report it so that problems are undiscovered until the emergency treatment needs to take place.
Industrial environments can often be busy places, so it is essential that there is clear access to the first aid eye wash, whether it is in a fixed or temporary position. Make sure that it is visible with clear signage if necessary so that even those new to the premises can access the treatment if required.

How often do eye showers need to be checked?
All safety showers should be serviced and cleaned regularly - at least every 6 months. Furthermore, they must be checked regularly (at least once a month or as specified by the manufacturer) to ensure that they are functioning properly.
