Safety showers from Spill Station Australia are designed to prevent infections caused by the legionella bacteria.
Usually associated with water cooling towers and garden soils, legionella bacteria causes serious infections in humans, and even death. It is important therefore, for businesses to ensure the health and safety of all workers.
A 2010 code of practice published by the WA Department of Mines & Petroleum regarding prevention of legionnaire’s disease identifies shower heads as a potential source of the bacteria.
The standard nozzle on all Spill Station safety showers is designed to prevent growth of legionella bacteria by ensuring all water forward of the valve is drained from the shower. The self-draining shower additionally drains all water from the entire shower/eyewash unit.
