Choosing the appropriate emergency response safety equipment is a complicated process, especially if your employees are required to operate at remote sites. Many factors need to be considered — the most important being accessibility, portability, and compliance with regulatory requirements such as AS 4775.
At BIG Safety, we supply a wide range of safety eye wash units across Australia. These are a form of first aid equipment designed to mitigate the damage caused due to accidental chemical exposure. Note that they’re not a viable substitute for PPE.
Depending on the size of your teams and their requirements, you can choose from a variety of water capacity ratings and features.
Why Portability Matters
Setting up a new plumbing line for every remote site is not always feasible. But, at the same time, it’s vital for employees to have quick and easy access to eye and face wash units.
Portability solves this problem, as they units are designed to be used along with a pressurized water canister. Despite the fact that the canister is pressurized, the spray results in a gentle but thorough rinse.
Emergency wash units can be either wall-mounted or cart-mounted, which widens the possibility of multiple placement options.
The products within our range are small enough for convenient transport, and can easily be stored when not in use. This makes it easy to relocate the equipment and set it up on new sites as needed.
