Safety & Training Short: First Aid - Emergency Eye Wash and ShowerFebruary 23, 2021Many chemicals, such as acids and bases, are corrosive and can easily damage employees’ skin and eyes. The severity of damage depends on how strong the chemical is, how long contact is maintained, and what actions are taken after contact is made. The first 10 – 15 seconds after exposure to a hazardous substance are critical. Delaying treatment may cause serious injury. Eye wash stations and safety showers provide on-the-spot decontamination, allowing employees to flush away hazardous substances that can cause injury.
