Though you never want to think about the occurrence, there may come a time when you come in contact with some hazardous liquid, chemical or debris, and this contact may be in your eyes. If this event happens, you want to make sure you are prepared with a stocked Eye Wash Station. Our Eye wash and double eye wash stations come stocked with solution that is used to relieve irritation, stinging or itching by removing foreign bodies and material from in and around your eyes. Brands like Fendall deliver this sterile eyewash solution from a sterile system and works to ensure that it is in compliance with a full 15-minute ANSI flushing requirement . Our stations are able to hold both Oval and Boston round solution bottles.
Emergency eyewashes/showers often go unused, so it's very important to test the devices regularly to help ensure they will function properly in an emergency situation. Studies have shown that the seconds immediately following an eye injury or chemical splash are often critical to minimizing damage. It's also critical that unacceptable levels of microorganisms have not built up over time, which if used can cause further damage to the eyes. According to ANSI standards, the eye wash station must be tested at least once per week.
