No one wants to be in accident, that's why laboratory workers take so many precautions. They wear personal protective equipment and carefully select each piece of apparatus, but accidents sometimes happen, no matter how many precautions we take. In these situations quick action is imperative, and a safety shower or eyewash can be extremely important. Many types of safety showers and eyewash stations exist. Laboratory employees need to be familiar with the various types of this equipment, their operation and under what circumstances they should be used.
To help employees plan for laboratory emergencies, and handle them when they occur, this education and training program is designed to present basic information in these areas. Topics include types of eyewashes and safety showers, working with corrosives, being prepared to use safety showers/eyewashes, assisting chemical splash victims and proper use of safety showers and eyewashes.
