Chemical exposure and the 10-second rule

4 June 2018 14:35:01 BST

The first 10-15 seconds after exposure are critical – delaying treatment could lead to serious or even life-altering injury.

Teknomek has a new range of safety showers and eye wash stations that act as a first line of defense in the event of a chemical splash or spillage – ready and waiting with on-the-spot decontamination to minimise harm.

Our unheated safety showers are available as ceiling mounted with overhead shower nozzle for optimal spray pattern; or wall mounted featuring a handheld reinforced hose for more directional showers, with an integrated eye wash at face level.

Our eye wash stations also use unheated, aerated water, and come with a choice of fittings; wall mounted, pedestal mounted, or freestanding – all quickly activated by hand or foot. Twin spray nozzles wash both eyes simultaneously and are protected with dust covers that automatically lift when the water flow begins – an example of intelligent, hygienic design right down to the details.

Safety showers and eye baths must be tested weekly to ensure smooth flow and minimise contamination caused by sitting water. Teknomek’s shower and eye wash testers go a step further and direct the water into a specially designed container for further inspection.

To find out more and see which shower design is right for your environment, head to our safety showers and eye washers page.
