Simply installing emergency equipment is not sufficient means of ensuring worker safety.
It is also very important that employees are trained in the location and proper use of emergency equipment .
Research shows that after an incident has occurred, rinsing eyes within the first tenseconds is essential.
Therefore, employees at the highest risk of damaging their eyes in each department must be trained regularly.
All employees must know the location of the emergency equipment and be aware that quick and effective rinsing is important in an emergency.
The sooner the injured employee's eyes are rinsed, the lower the risk of damage.
Every second is important when preventing permanent damage to save time for medical treatment.
All employees must be reminded that this equipment is only to be used in emergencies, tampering with the equipment may cause a malfunction.
In emergencies the afflicted person might require the assistance of others to help reach the equipment and use it.
