Necessities in Hazardous Work Environments – Eyewashes
Eyewashes are necessary for medical and chemical companies. When purchasing, you also need to consult the eyewash manufacturers clearly in order to buy eyewashes that meet your own needs.
Eyewash is a necessary equipment for safety and labor protection. When the eyes or body of the field operator come into contact with toxic, harmful and other corrosive chemicals, the eyewash can use these devices to flush or shower the eyes and body urgently, mainly to avoid further harm to the human body caused by the chemical substances. Emergency eyewash and shower equipment are emergency rescue facilities used in toxic, harmful and dangerous working environments. However, these devices only perform preliminary treatment on the eyes and body, and cannot replace medical treatment. In serious cases, further medical treatment must be carried out as soon as possible.
There are many types of eye washers, and the correct selection and use can play their due role. At present, there are many companies selling eye washes in China, and it is difficult for customers to distinguish who is the manufacturer of eye washes. At the same time, the quality of eye wash products is not uniform, which also brings certain difficulties to customers in choosing eye wash products.
When choosing an eyewash, you first need to confirm the effect of the chemicals on the eyewash; then confirm whether there will be weather below 0°C on site; and finally confirm which style of eyewash product to choose.
The ANSI/ISEA Z358.1 2009 Emergency Eyewash and Shower eyewash standard stipulates the temperature of the eyewash outlet water: 16–38℃. The introduction of this standard has put forward higher requirements for eyewash manufacturers.
Eyewash is an emergency rescue safety protection product, which is related to the safety protection of workers. Therefore, eyewash manufacturers should pay attention to quality first when producing eyewash.
