Emergency Eye Wash & Shower Use Exercise

Emergency Eye/Face Wash

Eyewash and Safety Shower DO’S AND DONATS

DO NOT – Keep electrical equipment near eyewashes and emergency showers.
DO NOT – Use safety equipment for cleaning lab or shop equipment, personal objects, or for other nonemergency purposes.
DO NOT- Remove any safety features attached to equipment, inspection tags or repair required tags.

DO – Keep the pathway to the emergency shower and eyewash clear of obstructions. The area should be kept neat and easily accessible with at least 32 inches of clear space around a safety shower and 6 inches clearance around an eyewash.

DO – Leave dust covers supplied with the eyewash in place. They prevent dust and debris from falling inside the eyewash heads and becoming projectiles when the unit is turned on.
DO – Bump test the emergency shower and eyewash equipment weekly and prior to performing high-risk tasks. Obtain a 5 gallon bucket, hold it up around the shower head, activate the shower and run for approximately 10 seconds or until bucket is full. When bump testing eyewash, let it run for 15 seconds, or until water is clear, if no drain is available place a small catch basin under drain before activating. Initial and date the inspection tag. 

Emergency Eye Wash

PREVENTION IS THE KEY TO EYE SAFETY 
It must be remembered that the first line of defense against toxic chemicals and eye irritants is proper eye and face protection coupled with proper handling techniques. Ensure you are wearing goggles when handling liquid chemicals that can splash up on you and a face shield when changing batteries or propane for forklifts.
