A scientist in his laboratory is not a mere technician: he is also a child confronting natural phenomena that impress him as though they were fairy tales.

Optimize Safety with Combination of Fixed and Portable Eyewash Stations

Combining Fixed Shower Eyewash and Portable Eyewash Stations in Workplace

Rescue Your Eyes Whenever, Wherever

Optimize Safety with Complete Emergency Shower & Eyewash System in your Workplace

Most workplace and laboratory designers often face the dilemma: what type of emergency equipment should I install?  The need for emergency showers or eyewash stations is based on the properties of the chemicals that workers use and the tasks that they do in the workplace. A job hazard analysis can provide an evaluation of the potential hazards of the job and the work areas. The selection of protection — emergency shower, eyewash or both — should match the hazard.

In collaborative workplace safety systems, providing both plumbed and portable eyewash systems are getting increasingly important. As industrial and workplace systems are getting more complex, experts and regulators stress their concerns about safety. Configuring bare minimum shower & eyewash systems may give a company a sense of comfort, having provided just enough equipment for the safety of their employees. However, this may overlook other potential occupational hazards.

Use Case & Solution

For example, eye-related accidents may occur where the victim cannot access the plumbed system due to injury or the working area layout. In order to maintain safe and secure operations, both plumbed and portable emergency eyewash stations should be established within the area. There is an increased demand in modern industrial workplaces to provide these systems simultaneously. A solution to this problem would be combining both systems in the workplace.

Simply attach the PLUM portable eyewash to your fixed unit of emergency shower and eyewash. By attaching the portable eyewash bottle, employees can grab the bottle and use it in case of an accident in the immediate work area.

RECOMMENDED COMBINATION:

  • FIXED UNITS – ECB SERIES
  • PORTABLE UNITS – PLUM BOTTLE EYEWASH

PLUM pH Neutral & Eyewash Station Promotion

Introduction

In a large number of jobs, businesses and industries, you are particularly exposed to serious eye injuries caused by chemicals. Workplaces like airports, chemical factories, cement factories, construction sites, mining industry, or in the petrochemical industry are some examples. These industries use a lot of strong acids and alkalis during the operation. The risk that something will go wrong, for example, because a hose comes loose, is part of everyday life. You need pH Neutral at hand.

In connection with eye injuries involving acids and alkali, it is important to neutralize the chemical as quickly as possible to a pH level of about 7.4. This is corresponding to the normal pH level of the eye’s fluid – preferably before the acid or alkali has penetrated into the cornea. To optimize safety where there is a risk of acid and alkali injuries, the eyewash solution must be:

  • Easily accessible
  • Quick to use
  • Effective

PLUM pH Neutral Eyewash is a 4.9% phosphate buffer that will quickly and effectively neutralize even very strong acids and alkali. The liquid consists of phosphate salts that are present in the body. The hydrogen phosphate buffer is effective against acids, whereas the dihydrogen phosphate buffer reacts against alkali. We have tested the neutralising effect of pH Neutral for both strong acids and alkali compared with the effect of ordinary eyewash with 0.9% sodium chloride. The test clearly shows that pH Neutral will quickly neutralize both acids and alkali to a harmless pH level. In case of chemical eye accident, you can use this unit to rinse your eyes before continuing with the 500ml PLUM Emergency Eyewash (Model EP 4604) until you reach a doctor or an emergency room.

Now more than ever, safety in a workplace must be prioritised to ensure employees, customers, all stakeholders are not directly exposed to the fatal/permanent damage risk. The followings are the list of products that are currently in promotion:
