Combatting Bacteria Growth in Safety Showers and Eye/Face wash equipment
Emergency safety showers and eye wash stations are essential for sites where workers could come into contact with hazardous chemicals. In some environments providing this life saving equipment can be challenging, for instance locations where a consistent supply of potable water cannot be guaranteed.
For these sites, emergency tank showers and self-contained units provide a viable solution. However, as this equipment can go unused for extended periods of time, the water held in a self-contained shower or eye/face wash units may become stagnant. This makes it susceptible to bacterial growth and if not properly treated and maintained can become a source of infection.
