Enware Australia offers a comprehensive range of emergency eyewash and deluge equipment for workplace safety applications.
The company is extending its comprehensive OH&S range to protect employees working at battery recharging stations of electric vehicles and mobile machinery. Battery-powered electric vehicles are being adopted by companies to reduce their carbon footprint and exposure to airborne pollutants.
Electric vehicles range from factory forklifts to resort golf buggies and healthcare passenger transport.
The company’s products include an extensive range of emergency eyewash and deluge equipment that meets the requirements of Australian Standards for battery recharge areas.
Enware is a major manufacturer of stainless steel showers in Australia and exports their products to 15 countries.
Their products include rugged Australian-made stainless steel emergency showers and eyewashes that meet AS4775 and ANSI Z 358.1-2004 standards for industrial and commercial use.
These products are suitable for environments where workers may be exposed to particularly hazardous chemicals and other injurious substances including battery acid.
They also comply with the Australian Standards requirement (section 2.7.2 battery charging installations), which states that facilities for quick drenching of the eyes and body shall be provided within eight metres of the work area.
“Placing eyewash equipment near workplace hazard locations can be critical because, when a hazardous substance makes contact with the human eye, damage to sensitive tissue can be immediate. In certain cases, the only hope to reduce the severity of injury and reduce the time and treatment required for recovery is by utilising emergency eyewash and shower facilities. The recommended maximum time between accident and irrigation is 10 seconds,” says Enware Australia Managing Director Mr Paul Degnan.
Enware’s shower and decontamination products include portable as well as wall and pedestal-mounted safety equipment. These products are manufactured in Australia to comply with the toughest regulations covering workplace safety.
The company is accredited to the highest ISO quality grading, ISO 9001 for its quality assurance in the design, development, production, installation and servicing of its ranges of water technology and safety products.
Enware’s custom manufacturing capability provides solutions engineered to particular safety requirements.
Enware has also obtained third party endorsement for its safety deluge range in line with ANSI Z 358.1 2004 requirements.
