In the event of a hazardous eye contamination, time is of the essence.
Left untreated, even for a few seconds, exposure of the eye to chemicals, toxins and foreign bodies can lead to serious eye damage or even blindness.
Work-related eye injuries result in more than 500 hospital admissions each year, according to an Australian Safety and Compensation Council report.
Most workers take up to two days off from work to recover, leading to significant productivity losses.
Personal protective equipment specialists Sperian Protection has developed a range of delivery systems and devices to provide optimal emergency eye care in the workplace.
The company offers a range of emergency eyewash stations and personal products which deliver flushing fluids to decontaminate the eye area.
The eyewash stations use Eyesaline, a preserved, buffered, saline solution, which is superior to tap water or water with a preservative.
The range includes:
- Sperian Portastream II – a simple to install and operate emergency eyewash station offering versatile portability and 15 min of uninterrupted flushing – without costly plumbing.
- Sperian Fendall Pure Flow 1000 – an emergency eyewash station delivering unequalled eyewash safety, reliability and value.
This unit delivers a contaminant-free and physiologically correct saline solution from factory-sealed cartridges. It is also self-contained and doesn’t require plumbing.
- Sperian Personal Eyewash – available in factory-sealed bottles, the range of Personal Eyewash Products from Sperian can deliver drops or an irrigating stream of solution. Each bottle features an easy open tamper-resistant top and extendedflow nozzles, which provides a longer flow than most other conventional products.
