Challenges Facing On-Site Work Areas
Safety remains a big issue for workers on-site. Many hazards face construction workers, as well as for miners, industrial, and oil refinery workers. These commonplace issues include weather conditions, accidents involving falling, falling objects, stepping on sharp objects, and exposure from dangerous chemicals or environmental dangers or accidents, such as clothing fires. When it comes to having a safety shower, OSHA requires standards that ensure safety, protection, and worker privacy.
A few of these requirements include an accident victim being able to reach the safety equipment in no more than ten seconds – particularly if exposed to a highly-corrosive chemical. ANSI states that an average person walks 55 feet in ten seconds; however, this doesn’t account for an emotional state of mind, as well the physical inability in an emergency. Using common sense and caution is the best rule. If your safety shower doesn’t have the required features to efficiently protect your workers, you have a problem. For instance, if your safety shower is ANSI Z358.1 non-compliant, can’t withstand weather conditions, or doesn’t have a self-containing option, you can’t be sure of worker safety. Who wants that on their conscience? If the safety shower doesn’t hold up to the elements, what good is it?
