Bradley emergency showers and eyewash stations provide on the-the-spot decontamination. They allow workers to flush away hazardous substances that can cause injury. Emergency showers are designed to flush the user’s head and body. They should not be used to flush the user’s eyes because the high rate of pressure of water flow could damage the eyes in some instances. Eye stations are designed to flush the eye and face area only. There are combination units available that contain both features: a shower and an eye wash.
The need for emergency showers or eyewash stations is based on the properties of the chemicals that workers use and the tasks that they do in the workplace. The selection of protection emergency shower, eyewash or both should match the hazard.
In some jobs or work areas, the effect of a hazard may be limited to the worker’s face and eyes. Therefore, an eyewash station may be right device for the worker protection. In other situations, the worker may risk part or full body contact with a chemical. In these areas, an emergency shower may be more appropriate.
A combination unit has the ability to flush any part of the body or all the body. It is the most protective device and should be used wherever possible. This unit is also appropriate in work areas where detailed information about the hazards is lacking, or where complex, hazardous operations involve many chemicals with different properties. A combination unit is useful in situations where there are difficulties handling a worker who may not be able to follow directions because of intense pain or shock from an injury.
The emergency showers and eyewash station must be tested once a week.
