Eyewash and Emergency Shower 5 Steps for Compliance

In an ideal workplace, employers would always be aware of potential dangers to employees' eyes, and employees would always wear Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). But some workplaces aren't ideal, and accidents do happen. Therefore, in workplaces where
corrosive chemicals are handled, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration requires that facilities provide devices for drenching or flushing the eyes for immediate emergency use. Eyewashes and showers should be in compliance with Z358.1-2014. Construction, installation and location of the eyewash or eyewash and shower should meet the ANSI requirements.. "More....

cleanrooms

Laboratory Clean Room Furnishings

Choice of clean room casework, or furniture, is one of the most important decisions made when setting up classified space. Cabinets and associated doors, hinges, handles, panels, bench tops, shelving, and vertical/horizontal surfaces must be compatible with the application and the clean room’s classification by Federal Standard 209E for airborne particulate cleanliness. Surfaces must be as easily cleaned as walls and floors, emit no particulate contaminants, and above all resist exposure to liquids and solids processed inside the room.”More....
