Learn about TS Eye Wash and Face Wash Stations

Learn about TS Eye Wash and Face Wash Stations

Hi welcome to the T&S eye wash line. I wanted to take you through he different types of eye wash, why you need one, and what the answer requirements are in regards to eye wash. This is strictly an eye wash station, you can tell because of the way the spray head is shaped. This one however is an eye face wash and you can tell because the spray face has a much larger area to spray the face and the eyes. Standards require one second one touch activation, which in this case is simply a push of the paddle and the eyewash automatically activates. That works on this one, this one on the other hand; it’s a pull on the side which automatically activates the eyewash. And again you push it this way and it turns back off again. In addition to the products that we just reviewed we also have several other products on the line. We have the stainless steel bowl that can be either wall or pedestal mounted. And again this is an eye face wash that is activated with one touch, one second activation. This unit is great for caterers or contractors that are out on the jobs site and don’t have a permanent unit, this is our portable unit. It’s a 9 gallon unit gravity fed unit, simply activate by pulling the door down, gravity feeds the water down and then you have your eye face wash. This unit is perfect for new construction; it is an in-wall flush instillation. So you simply pull the door down, which automatically activates the product eye face wash, the water drains away into the unit itself and into your plumbing system. This completes the line with T&S.

TS Brass The Importance Of Eyewash Stations

TS Brass The Importance Of Eyewash Stations

In a work environment, no one likes to think about the worst case scenario. What if things don't go as planned? What if there is an accident? What if someone gets hurt? As you might imagine, preparing for the unexpected is the best way to ensure that your staff can go about their work without fear and to ensure that even a surprise incident will have an on-site solution.

For many work settings, that preparation includes an eyewash station. Eyes are one of the most important, and most sensitive, parts of the human body. Jobs that involve a risk to eye safety need an eyewash station nearby in order to offer workers a close, rapid way to rinse their eyes and minimize damage. Otherwise, work can come to a halt while everyone nearby tends to the injured employee, and the affected employee may possibly experience a permanent disability.

When most people think of an eyewash station, they picture a particular kind of environment—either a janitorial setting, or a laboratory, where chemicals are used freely and the risks are ever-present. However, many forget one of the most common environments where an eyewash station is needed is the commercial kitchen. Though many don't realize it, kitchens put eyes at risk almost constantly. Substances of all kinds splatter from pans, grills, and fryers. Workers rub their eyes unconsciously after chopping or preparing raw or spicy foods. And, though kitchens aren't janitorial centers, they still require chemicals for frequent use, such as sanitizers and bleach.

If people realized the risks that kitchen hazards pose, the need for an eyewash station would be automatically apparent. Unfortunately, many don't imagine the pain that splattered grease, or even a little jalapeño juice could bring to an eye. No one would want to think long about what a little sanitizer would do if it was accidentally sprayed in someone's face.

Many have found out the hard way, and their kitchen employees have faced the terrible experience of sudden damage to their eyes with no eyewash station on site to help them. Lawsuits have become quite intense, and for good reason. Employees want to know that they are working in a safe environment, and that even the unexpected, but possible, is planned for.

In addition to the very real risks in the kitchen, OSHA and ANSI regulations provide another motivation for kitchens to stock an eyewash station. Consider this quotation from OSHA, "OSHA does not require eyewash stations by industry. The need for an eyewash is determined by chemicals that are being used in the establishment. If corrosive chemicals are being used, an eyewash is very important.

ANSI standard is similar: "Each employer shall furnish to each of his employees employment and a place of employment which are free from recognized hazards that are causing or likely to cause death or serious physical harm to his employees."

If OSHA inspects a kitchen workplace and finds that there are no suitable facilities for quickly drenching and flushing the eyes and body, they can issue a citation, which may result in substantial fines into the thousands of dollars.

There's no need for kitchens to risk so much, either for their employees, or from OSHA. Eyewash stations are simple to purchase and install, and T&S offers a wide range of eye and face wash options to fit the needs of your foodservice environment. Contact T&S today, and keep your kitchen well-stocked for safety and success for decades to come.
