No one wants to be in an accident, so we wear personal protective equipment, take precautionary measures, and maintain focus on the job at hand. However, accidents can and do happen. In a laboratory setting, a safety shower or an eye wash could minimize the damage caused by a chemical spill or exposure. This training on laboratory safety showers and eye wash stations demonstrates how to act if you or your coworkers become exposed to a hazardous material.

In your laboratory, you must always know the location of the nearest eye wash station and safety shower. In fact, you should be able to find them even if you were blindfolded. This training video models how to properly use safety shower and eye wash stations. In addition, this Video On Demand lesson teaches you how to maintain these safety stations. It does no good to have an eye wash station or safety shower that does not function properly or lacks potable water.

When an exposure occurs, a quick response is vital. One must not waste time learning where safety stations are or how to use them while an accident is happening; this information should have been processed long ago. Use this training video to prepare for quick responses and decisive actions which could potentially save your eyesight, or even your life.

This course has been updated to include GHS container labels and Safety Data Sheets (SDS) for GHS compliance.
