With any business requiring workers to deal with materials that are corrosive, toxic or serve as irritants to skin or eyes, hand and eye washing systems are necessary for worker safety. These systems provide hand washing facilities for workers to quickly remove a spill from their skin, and emergency eye washing capabilities that can send water directly to the eye and face. Placed within easy reach of workers, a hand and eye washing station helps reduce serious injuries from spills.
While there are a variety of systems available, they all share common characteristics. Hand washing stations are based on a traditional sink setup with a few additions. The first being heated water for comfort, as well as to limit the shock to your skin with use. With the second addition being the operation of the station by foot pedal activation, preventing you from contaminating a faucet handle with your hands.
The eye wash station comes in three basic models. The most primitive is a squeeze bottle containing an eye wash that you spray into your eyes. The second spray device is a drench hose attached to a sink. The third station is an eye wash sink that shoots a stream of water upward to lower your eyes into.
