Eyewash Station and Safety Shower

Collection: Eyewash Station and Safety Shower

When storing dangerous goods, it is very important to have an emergency eyewash station and chemical shower to deal with any incidents that may occur. Emergency showers and eyewash stations allow you to quickly wash away any dangerous chemicals that may come into contact with your face or body while handling hazardous chemicals.

Emergency Showers and Eyewash Stations that Comply with AS 4775

The Australian Standard AS 3780 states that an emergency eyewash station and safety shower must be installed within 10 metres, but no closer than 2m to the location where corrosive substances are kept. The Australian Standard AS 1940 also states that a eyewash station must be within 10m, but no closer than 2m to locations where packages of flammable liquids are kept. If the quantities of flammable liquids exceed 2000L, a chemical safety shower must also be installed.
