Time is of the essence in the event of a hazardous eye contamination and if left untreated, even for a few seconds, exposure of the eye to chemicals, toxins and foreign bodies can lead to serious eye damage or even blindness.
According to a 2008 Australian Safety and Compensation Council report, work-related eye injuries are an important problem, resulting in more than 500 hospital admissions a year. Most workers take up to two days off from work to recover, leading to significant loss of productivity in the workplace.
As a provider of personal protective equipment (PPE), Sperian recognises the importance of the initial treatment in minimising work related eye injuries, and has developed a range of world renowned delivery systems and devices that provide optimal emergency eye care in the workplace.
Eyesaline is a preserved, buffered, saline solution that is more effective than tap water or water with a preservative, and Sperian Protection offers a range of emergency eye wash stations and personal products that deliver flushing fluids to decontaminate the eye area.
Sperian Portastream II emergency eye wash stations are easy to install and operate and offer versatile portability and 15 minutes of uninterrupted flushing without costly plumbing. These emergency eye wash station can be easily and affordably placed near most workplace hazards.
These emergency eye wash stations are self contained, and features a patented nozzle strap that is easily removed to activate flushing, leaving the hands free to hold the eyelids open.
A large fill hole and lockable fill cap simplifies cleaning and refilling, and also reduces the risk of possible tampering. Portastream II emergency eye wash stations have a moulded construction and are sturdy and easy to use.
Sperian Fendall Pure Flow 1000 emergency eyewash stations deliver eyewash safety, reliability and value. Delivering a contaminant-free and physiologically correct saline solution from factory-sealed cartridges, this patented system is self contained and does not require any plumbing. The cartridges in the emergency eye wash station remains sealed until activated, and take less than 5 minutes to replace.
Sperian Fendall Pure Flow 1000 emergency eye wash stations feature a unique nozzle design that delivers a soft ribbon of Eyesaline and also features a fluid pressure balancing system that provides a constant fluid flow rate and stream height for the entire 15-minute flushing period, as required by ANSI Z358.1-2004.
Sperian Personal Eyewash emergency eye wash units are available in factory-sealed bottles and can deliver drops or an irrigating stream of solution. Each bottle feature an easy open tamper-resistant top and extended-flow nozzles which provide longer flow.
