Eye injuries in the workplace are very common and can happen when foreign objects like specks of dust, wood chips, sand, metal shavings or chemicals and liquid substances enter the eye. Eye injuries due to chemicals or hazardous materials can be very dangerous, therefore it is highly important to have an emergency eyewash station where hazardous chemicals are stored and handled to be able to respond to accidents promptly. Eye injuries can result in progressive tissue damage, permanent blindness or even death.
According to AS 4775-2007, eyewash equipment can be plumbed or self-contained however the unit must be able to constantly deliver at least 1.5 L for a minimum of 15 minutes. Also, eyewash stations need to provide a controlled flow of flushing fluid to both eyes at the same time and at a velocity low enough so that it does not injure the eyes. STOREMASTA emergency eyewash stations are fitted with an automatic pressure compensating valve to ensure steady flow.
