Safety Showers and Eye Washes Video and DVD Excerpt:
The world is full of chemicals. They come packaged in cans, tubes, cylinders, boxes, barrels and bottles. Many of these substances are hazardous when not treated with the proper respect. Corrosives are a good example, this is a large group of chemicals that includes everything from household cleaners to heavy duty industrial acids. Many corrosive chemicals will cause immediate burn damage when splashed on your skin, and a single splash to your eyes. Just one mistake mind you, could cause permanent blindness. This is where our friend water comes in. H2O neutralizes the damaging effects of chemical burns. Water lives in the pipes of safety showers and eye washes. This emergency equipment is generally located where corrosive or other hazardous substances are found. No one wants to be in an accident, that's why we take so many precautions with our work. We examine the dangers of each project before beginning, and we wear personal protective equipment. But no matter how many precautions we take, well, sometimes things happen. And when they do we need to move fast, and find water. So what can we do from mishandling chemicals, and avoid getting intimate with safety showers and eyewash? Well, there are steps to take to limit exposure.
