Emergency showers, eyewashes and tepid water delivery systems are required to provide emergency treatment in
preventing permanent eye and skin damage from accidental exposure to chemicals, biohazards or airborne debris.
In the absence of a uniquely Canadian standard for the design and placement of emergency eyewash and shower equipment,
provincial authorities in all jurisdictions in Canada refer to the ANSI Z358.1-2009 standard for recommendations
and enforcement regarding emergency eyewash and shower requirements.
TENAQUIP offers a comprehensive range of products and services to help comply with ANSI emergency shower and
eyewash guidelines including site audits of existing or future installations to ensure compliance.
Emergency drenching fixtures must be readily accessible for use in manufacturing, laboratories, refineries, mines,
construction sites and wherever workers may be accidentally splashed or sprayed with injurious solvents,
acids, harmful particulates and, in some cases, biological hazards.
