Protecting Your Eyes and Body is Important When Handling Hazardous Materials
The protection of eyes and body is of particular importance when dealing with hazardous substances. Should an accident occur despite all other safety precautions, eye/face wash stations and emergency combination showers are a necessity. Additional remedial measures also need to be initiated immediately to keep possible damage to a minimum.
DENIOS offers a range emergency showers suitable for every situation and requirement. A full body decontamination shower provides fast first aid for minimizing possible contamination of the body following an accident. They are extremely easy to use and can be wall or ceiling mounted or free-standing. We also offer a range of safety shower combinations, which provide the features of a full body emergency safety shower but also include an additional eye and face wash.
For any business working with hazardous materials, an emergency shower should be an integral piece of onsite equipment to ensure employees are best protected and should be installed in potentially dangerous areas as it is essential that the body and/or eyes be rinsed quickly after contact with hazardous substances.
Not only in case of cauterization of the eyes (for example due to acid or alkali contact), immediate rinsing with an emergency shower is necessary to avoid lasting damage. A flushing time of 20 minutes is recommended. Full-body showers are used for quick first aid after accidents to minimize possible contamination of the body.
