Haws: Featured White Paper: The Ultimate Emergency Shower… Never Has to Be Used

May 30, 2012

Health & Safety

Sparks, NV (May 30, 2012) – Most emergency shower and eye/face wash installations across North America do not comply with signicant code provisions, even though the most recent ANSI Z358.1 Standard was released in 2009.

Exposure to risks associated with non-compliance increase signicantly for companies that have not yet upgraded their emergency eyewashes and showers. Non-compliance OSHA nes typically begin at $100,000 and can easily exceed $1 million. However, the most damaging risk is an injured worker’s ability to claim excessive injury from a non-compliant drench shower or eyewash. In today’s “lawsuit lottery” business climate, even a rich imagination is no match for jury-system settlements. Download this month’s featured white paper and learn more on how to automate safety eyewash and drench shower testing.  Efficiently achieving continuous compliance helps keep workers safe while avoiding costly fines.

Why tepid water?
