Just because you bought a compliant safety shower/eyewash, it does not end your responsibility. In order for you to maintain compliance, a scheduled maintenance and testing system must be in place.
All shower units shall be inspected annually to ensure compliance with the requirements of this standard. A tag should be permanently attached to each shower unit to be marked at the successful completion of each inspection.
It is the duty of every employer to ensure the health, safety and welfare at work of every employee and this includes the maintenance of safety equipment. Failure to provide and maintain compliant safety shower and eyewash equipment onsite breaches WHS legislation and puts workers at risk of severe and permanent injury.
Regular testing and routine servicing will ensure that your emergency safety showers and eye wash units continue to operate effectively during their lifetime, ensuring this essential life-saving equipment operates perfectly when needed.
The Spill Station shower and eyewash testing services specialises in laboratories, prep rooms and other indoor locations where test water needs to be contained.
