ON-SITE SAFETY MOVES IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION AS SHOWERS & EYEBATHS SERVICES UNVEILS NEW MOBILE EMERGENCY SHOWER
Showers & Eyebaths Services Ltd has upgraded its mobile emergency shower to provide a unit which operates efficiently and effectively in the harshest of conditions.
The upgraded GPS12 Self Contained Bowser Safety Shower boasts all the original key features but has additional collapsible side and top panels. These panels, when erected, not only provide a rigid shield against the elements but, more vitally, ensure the overhead spray makes contact with the user and doesn’t get blown away from its target.
Allen Yates, Managing Director of Showers & Eyebaths said: “By law, it is the duty of site owners and operators to take the necessary steps to eliminate or reduce onsite hazards and risks. However, this can be a very expensive operation if you have bulky safety equipment to move every time a site is completed.
“Additionally, continual upheaval of what is meant to be a static unit can effect its operation, leading to possible failure exactly at the moment it is needed. This is not an option when it comes to safety showers which have to work everytime. It must also be remembered that many sites do not have access to a mains water supply. The bowser itself holds 1200 litres of water which will give 15 minutes of spray before there is a need to refill.
“Our new mobile Bowser Safety Shower is already in operation in a large French sugar manufacturing plant which is being upgraded and needed additional but temporary backup support during building works.”
The standard bowser unit comes fully operational with an emergency shower, pump, built in trailer unit for transportation and Safety signs. Optional extras available for the unit are eyewash/face wash, 240v or 110 v heater for frost protection and collapsible side and top panels.
