Eye Safety and Eyewash
Experts agree the most important first aid procedure for eye contact with hazardous materials is abundant irrigation within seconds. The need for immediate flushing requires the installation of emergency eyewash devices in accessible locations that require no more than 10 SECONDS to reach. Studies have shown there is a significant difference in the outcome of chemically burned eyes that receive prompt irrigation and those that did not undergo immediate flushing â€“ patients required less surgery, had shorter hospital stays, and faster recoveries.
Making Your Selection
The type of emergency eyewash device, the flushing solution used, and the maintenance of that device can greatly affect the treatment and eventual recovery of an injured eye. Safety professionals can choose from a variety of delivery systems and flushing fluids when selecting emergency eyewash devices. The primary eyewash unit required for a hazard area must meet the requirements set by ANSI Z358.1-2004. Eyewash stations and bottles that supply less than the minimum flushing requirements of ANSI Z358.1-2004 are intended to support, not replace, primary units. These supplemental or personal eyewash units are referred to as secondary devices
