According to a 2008 Australian Safety and Compensation Council report, work-related eye injuries are ‘an important problem’, resulting in over 500 hospital admissions a year.
Workers can take up to two days off from work to recover from a serious eye injury, which can lead to a significant loss of productivity in the workplace.
Fendall Pure Flow 1000 emergency eyewash units deliver a contaminant free and physiologically correct saline solution from factory sealed cartridges, to treat hazardous eye contaminations when they occur, and do not require any plumbing to install.
The cartridges used in these eye wash stations remain sealed until activated, and can last at least four times longer than other primary, self-contained eye washers. They also take less than five minutes to replace.
Fendall Pure Flow 1000 eyewash units also feature a unique nozzle design, which delivers a soft ‘ribbon’ of Eyesaline and 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.
