U.S. Chemical Storage buildings are designed to facilitate the chemical storage process, but protecting personnel who handle hazardous materials is even more important. Provide your workers with direct access to safety solutions with our many personal safety accessories, including emergency safety showers and eyewashes, signage, material handling equipment, and more.
We can offer a variety of emergency eye wash and shower stations that comply with ANSI standards and OSHA requirements. The ANSI/ISEA Z358.1 standard provides guidelines for the location and performance of emergency eye wash and shower station. It states the equipment must be on the same level and within 10 seconds of an identified chemical hazard – approximately 55 feet. The path to reach it must be free of any obstacles or equipment.
Safety Shower flow rates must meet the need for enough flow of water to flush the affected area completely. They require a minimum supply of 20 gallons per minute at a pressure of 30 lbs. per square inch for at least 15 minutes. If the water supply is too hot or too cold, it may cause further harm to the injured person. That’s why ANSI specifies the water temperature must be in the tepid range of 60° to 100° F (16° to 38° C).
We offer different models for different applications. Workplace safety is fundamentally about the people you strive to protect and the environments in which they live and work. In an emergency, safety showers and eye washes can be the difference between life and death.
Annual inspections certify that the emergency safety shower remains compliant with the ANSI requirements. Validate water temperature, flow rate, location, operation, etc. on an annual basis. This makes sure the equipment is performing how it should and providing the right level of emergency relief.
