Safety shower and eye testing Melbourne

Don’t get caught without a Safety Shower or Eyewash Station installation! Not having an operational Safety Shower and Eyewash Station can leave you unprepared for a variety of potential workplace disasters.

This could cause serious injury to an employee, and cost you thousands in damages once lawyers start knocking at your door! Avoid the unnecessary by getting an eye wash station and safety shower installation done by the commercial plumbing professionals at Banjo Nominees Pty Ltd. As per the Australian National Standard, you must also have your safety shower and eye wash station tested annually.

Any workplace that handles hazardous chemicals or substances is, by law, required to have safety showers and eyewash stations for decontamination in the case that the chemicals come into contact with skin, eyes or the body. The first 10 to 15 seconds of being exposed to a hazardous chemical or substance is critical, especially if it’s an abrasive substance. Therefore, any delays in treatment can cause critical injuries. A safety shower or eye wash station installation is vital if you want to keep your staff protected in an emergency.

Here at Banjo Nominees Pty Ltd, we have over 60 years’ experience in all aspects of commercial plumbing services, and as our company specialises in the health and safety of our clients, we have some fantastic and affordable options for both safety showers and eyewash station testing and installation.

Your wellbeing is paramount to us, and as with any equipment put in place to keep you safe, it is vital that safety showers and eyewashes are regularly inspected, tested and maintained.

What are safety showers and eyewash station installations?

Often, facilities such as laboratories have a safety shower and eyewash station. This is for an immediate and critical response when a person or persons are exposed to hazardous or dangerous substances. Not having an eye wash station or safety shower, or having one that has not been tested or maintained recently, can be disastrous in a critical situation. This is because they allow the quick removal of contaminants from the eye or skin that could otherwise cause irritation, infection, injury, blindness, or in something worse.

Why do safety showers and eyewash equipment require testing, and how frequently is testing required?

To ensure that safety showers and eyewash stations have a clean, potable supply of water and are in correct working order, it is a mandatory requirement that all emergency safety showers and eyewashes are tested. This includes turning on the equipment briefly once a week to test for proper functionality, with testing by a trained plumbing maintenance professional required annually by the Australian National Standard.
