In addition to addressing to injurious corrosive materials, suitable facilities for quick design and engineering issues, specifiers must be aware drenching or flushing of the eyes and body shall be provided of regulatory requirements and compliance standards.
In this Checklist, we have summarized covering emergency eyewash and shower equipment. This and graphically presented the provisions of the standard. The ANSI standard is part of the building code in working conditions. ANSI Z It was revised in , , , and again in This Compliance OSHA has adopted several regulations that refer to the use Checklist summarizes and graphically presents the provisions of emergency eyewash and shower equipment.
The primary of the version of the standard. Guardian Equipment telephone UPC listed Units have been tested to and comply with 2 Chicago, IL gesafety. In addition to the provisions in the standard, there are additional considerations that are not part of the standard. We believe that these considerations should also be addressed when considering emergency equipment.
These include the following: 1. The version of the standard states that the water As such, they are a form of first aid equipment to be used in temperature delivered by emergency equipment should be the event of an accident.
However, in circumstances where a chemical reaction and protective clothing or for safe procedures for handling is accelerated by flushing fluid temperature, a facilities hazardous materials. At a minimum, it equipment be installed within 10 seconds walking time from generally involves providing both hot and cold water to the the location of a hazard approximately 55 feet Appendix unit, and then installing a mixing valve to blend the water to B5.
The equipment must be installed on the same level as the desired temperature. Guardian offers a variety of mixing the hazard i. The path of travel from the provide tempered water. Please contact our office for further hazard to the equipment should be free of obstructions and information.
However, there are certain circumstances where these 4. Previous versions of the Plumbed emergency equipment must be connected to a standard expressly provided that, where workers are handling potable water supply line.
It may be advisable to install a shut particularly strong acids, caustics or other materials where off valve on the water line, upstream of the unit, to facilitate the consequences of a spill would be very serious, emergency maintenance of the equipment.

The recessed cabinet units are a of time. Materials that are considered involves a relatively small amount of hazardous material. Units have been tested to and comply with Chicago, IL gesafety. However, these units are designed with waste connections for connection materials may not provide durable service when exposed to to drain piping. There are many applications where emergency equipment 8. Such areas may include any type of outdoor area Simply installing emergency equipment is not sufficient bulk material handling facility, tank farm, etc.
Employees must be trained in some interior areas loading docks, low temperature facilities, the location of emergency equipment and in its proper etc. In these cases, the emergency equipment must be use. Emergency equipment must be regularly maintained protected against freezing Sections 4. Equipment that is designed and manufactured to be that it is in working order and inspected at least annually for freeze-resistant should be installed.
There are a number of compliance with the standard. Most importantly, employers different types of freeze-resistant equipment, including: should develop a response plan to be used in the event that an accident does occur. These units are generally used only where the possibility of freezing is Guardian offers a variety of alarm systems that may be very infrequent.
Guardian offers detailed installation, operation However, designers must give consideration to where waste and maintenance guides for its equipment. These guides are water will go. In particular, care must be taken that waste available on the Guardian website gesafety.
Note: This ANSI Compliance Checklist is intended to assist design personnel, facility owners and others in selecting, specifying, installing and maintaining emergency equipment. We have tried to assure that it is comprehensive and accurate. Guardian Equipment cannot be responsible for any errors or omissions from this Checklist, and cannot assure that any particular product will perform satisfactorily in any particular application.
Units have been tested to and comply with 4 Chicago, IL gesafety. F Water supply is sufficient to provide at least 20 GPM for 15 minutes. Section 4. Where strong acids or caustics are being handled, emergency showers should be located adjacent to the hazard, and an appropriate professional should be consulted for advice on the proper distance.
Area around shower shall be well-lit. F Controlled, low velocity flow completely rinses eyes and face and is not injurious to user. Section 6. Covers are removed by water flow. Units have been tested to and comply with 6 Chicago, IL gesafety. F Controlled, low velocity flow rinses both eyes and is not injurious to user.
Section 5. Where strong acids or caustics are being handled, emergency eyewash unit should be located adjacent to the hazard, and an appropriate professional should be consulted for advice on the proper distance. Area around eyewash unit shall be well-lit. Please refer to the standard for units. Guardian offers a series of units that meet the provisions of a complete listing of these provisions.

Section 7. Area around safety station shall be well-lit. Units have been tested to and comply with 10 Chicago, IL gesafety. These workplaces for barrier-free applications. These units meet the provisions of may therefore require emergency eyewash and shower equipment ANSI Z These provisions include dimensions for minimum knee clearance, maximum height and reach, and minimum distance from obstructions. Safe workplaces demand advanced emergency eyewash and shower equipment.
Characterized by enhanced performance and superior durability, all Guardian products feature the latest innovations in spray head technology. The user receives more water over a wider area than with any other type of outlet head. In an emergency, contaminants are flushed away quickly, gently, and completely. The flow is consistent, and are protected against any potential foreign evenly balanced between the spray heads matter which may exist in the water or plumbing regardless of line pressure.

There is no grandfather clause, and existing equipment must be compliant with the revised standard. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration OSHA has a general requirement specifying where and when emergency eyewash and shower equipment must be available, but it does not specify operating or installation requirements. These systems are typically found in manufacturing facilities, construction sites, laboratories, medical offices and other workplaces. The standard specifies minimum performance criteria for flow rates, temperature and drenching patterns for a user to adequately rinse off a contaminant in an emergency situation. It also provides maintenance directives to ensure that the equipment is in proper working condition.
