Laboratory Safety: Safety Showers and Eye Washes in the Laboratory
No one wants to be in an accident, so we wear personal protective equipment, take precautionary measures, and maintain focus on the job at hand. However, accidents can and do happen. In a laboratory setting, a safety shower or an eye wash could minimize the damage caused by a chemical spill or exposure. This training on laboratory safety showers and eye wash stations demonstrates how to act if you or your coworkers become exposed to a hazardous material. When an exposure occurs, a quick response is vital. One must not waste time learning where safety stations are or how to use them while an accident is happening; this information should have been processed long ago. Use this training video to prepare for quick responses and decisive actions which could potentially save your eyesight, or even your life.
