Ensure your workplace is prepared if staff members are exposed to dangerous chemicals with our emergency eyewash and facewash units.
Chemical splashes can cause permanent eye injuries within 1-5 seconds. Washing that has commenced within a few seconds can be decisive in minimising eye damage.
Emergency eyewash and facewash units deliver essential first aid in the event of exposure, wherever chemicals, oils and fuels are handled.
Ensure your workplace is compliant and your personnel and staff are ready to address exposure to dangerous chemicals with the use of our emergency eyewash and facewash units.
Accidental chemical splashes can cause permanent eye injuries within 1-5 seconds. Washing the face and eyes done within the first few seconds of contact can be decisive in minimising damage to the eyes and skin.
The first seconds of exposure to hazardous chemicals, especially if they are corrosive substances, are critical. Delay in treatment, even for a few seconds, may cause serious injuries. In rare cases, they may even come between life or death.
Eyewash and Face Wash units are an essential first aid solution in the event of accidental exposure and contact to chemicals, oils, and fuels. Eyewash stations can provide on-the-spot decontamination.
Having such a facility allows workers to flush away hazardous substances that can cause injury, should they happen. Emergency face and eyewash stations are a necessary backup to minimise accidental exposure to hazardous chemicals.
Regardless of how careful and strict with safety protocols a job site may be, accidents can still occur. For this reason, it is a must to look beyond the use of safety goggles and protective equipment.
Let’s face it, spills and accidents happen. While we cannot spill beer at work, we do spill other things. When we get distracted while working, we can knock over 5-gallon buckets of chemicals, run forklifts into IBCs, burst hoses when fixing machines, and fill drums with chemicals. It can potentially happen to everyone, eventually.
When alarming situations like these happen, there should be no cause for panic or worry, we just need to be ready. We at Wholesale Safety Storage Australia (WSSA) provide our line of emergency face and eyewash systems that can help with such eventualities.
Eye injuries at work are one of the most common forms of accidents that happen in the work place. If your workers are at risk, an eyewash station that is certified by the CSA to meet ANSI Z 358.1-2009 and complies with Australian Standard AS 4775-2007 is an essential you can’t do without.

Irrigating or washing the eyes (and face) as soon as possible after a chemical exposure is the most critical factor in minimising eyes and tissue damage. Workers who are able to flush their face and eyes in the least time possible have been documented to have lesser severe injuries and require a shorter hospital visit.
