When it comes to hazardous materials, accidental spills can create serious problems. The results can sometimes be tragic. HAZMATs that get onto your skin or into your eyes can cause severe injuries such as burns and blindness, even death.
To avoid this, you need to be prepared to wash off hazardous materials as soon as possible after you are exposed to them. That's where safety showers and eye washes come in. In an emergency, this equipment dilutes and flushes HAZMATs away, helping to lessen the severity of any injuries or preventing them altogether.
In this program, we will discuss how safety showers and eye washes work, the safety standards that address their design, installation and use, and how to use the equipment effectively if you or a coworker are exposed to a HAZMAT on the job.
