Emergency Tank Shower – Safety Showers and Eyewash

Combination Shower & Eye Wash Room


Personnel within the water utilities industry are often exposed to remote and demanding environments due to the dangerous chemicals, such as sulphites and chloride, used in water treatment. To protect the safety of the workforce International and European standards state that emergency safety equipment should be installed within 10 seconds’ reach and on the same level as a potential hazard. However, due to the remote nature of water treatment sites the provision of emergency safety showers able to deliver tepid water can be challenging.
