Emergency showers and eyewashes

Emergency showers and eyewashes serve as a first aid tool when an accident occurs while handling chemicals. In this way, if any incident occurs, eye and body damage can be avoided.

Emergency showers: Characteristics

In areas where aggressive or flammable liquids are handled, there is always a risk of an accident and, as a consequence, a possible contamination of different parts of the body with substances hazardous to health.

Emergency showers are characterised by the fact that they are quick help and the first emergency measure. They are easy to operate and the maintenance and control of safety showers is very important. They are obligatory in many work areas according to the Law on Prevention of Occupational Risks and the Regulations for the Storage of Chemical Products.

Emergency eye showers: Characteristics

The main characteristic of emergency eyewashes is to decontaminate workers' eyes in the event of any type of accident, leak or spillage. They provide aerated water at low pressure and bathe the face and eyes without damaging the eye tissues. This avoids eye problems resulting from contact with hazardous substances.

There is a wide variety of emergency showers and eyewashes to suit any type of space and situation.
