  • Does my Safety Shower or Emergency Eyewash need a dedicated supply line?

    We receive a few enquiries asking whether a Emergency Safety Shower or Eye wash needs its own dedicated water supply line.

    The answer is no, as long as it meets the minimum standards below, however it is also worthwhile to consider the following points when planning the pipeline to your Safety Shower or Eye Wash.

    The minimum requirement for a combination emergency eye wash and safety shower is   25 mm, 1 inch pipe.

    A larger diameter may depend on the following:

    • Distance from the mains water;
    • Is the pipe straight,  water volume, pressure will be effected by pipe bends
    • Is the water supply used for other processes
    • If it is a long distance you may consider using a 32 mm pipe.

    We suggest you check the water flow in existing line,  looking for 120 Lt/minute.

    There is no requirement for a dedicated water supply to the safety shower.

    Let us know if you require any additional information for our Speakman Safety Shower and Emergency Eye wash range.

  • Do I need to use a Green Light at my Safety Shower or Emergency Eye wash?

    Posted on: 21, Sep
    Speakman Safety Shower & Eye wash Green Fluorescent Light Speakman Safety Shower & Eye wash Green Fluorescent Light

    This is a common question we are asked regarding safety lighting for Emergency Safety Showers and Eye wash units.

    Please see below the Australian Standards AS4775 requirement for lighting

    The three sections require the equipment be identified by signage and the area is well illuminated:

    The use of a green light is not stipulated in this Australian Standard, although it is used to identify the equipment location, This is more based around risk assessment, the colour green is associated with a medical facility. The green light readily identifies to users where the safety shower or eye wash is located for ease of finding in an emergency.

    A green light doesn’t illuminate the area. The area still needs to be well illuminated.

    AS4775-2007 Emergency eye wash and shower equipment

    6.6 Location       (Safety Shower)

    Emergency safety showers shall be positioned in accessible locations that require no more than 10 seconds to reach. The shower shall be located on the same level as the hazard and the path of travel shall be free of obstructions that may inhibit the immediate use of the equipment. Where the possibility of temperature extremes exists, equipment shall be protected from their effects both with respect to the equipment’s operation and the flushing fluid.

    Each emergency safety shower location shall be identified with a highly visible sign complying with AS1319 positioned so the sign is visible throughout the area served by the shower.

    The area around the emergency shower shall be well illuminated.

    7.4 Location       (Eye Wash)

    Emergency Eye washes shall be positioned in accessible locations that require no more than 10 seconds to reach. The eye wash unit shall be located on the same level as the hazard and the path of travel shall be free of obstructions that may inhibit the immediate use of the equipment. For a strong acid or strong caustic, the eyewash should be located immediately adjacent to the hazard.

    Each eyewash location shall be identified with a highly visible sign complying with AS1319 positioned so the sign is visible throughout the area served by the shower.

    The area around the eyewash shall be well illuminated.

    8.4 Location       (Eye Face Wash)

    Emergency Eye/face washes shall be positioned in accessible locations that require no more than 10 seconds to reach. The eye/face  wash unit shall be located on the same level as the hazard and the path of travel shall be free of obstructions that may inhibit the immediate use of the equipment. For a strong acid or strong caustic, the eye/face wash should be located immediately adjacent to the hazard.

    Each safety eye/face wash location shall be identified with a highly visible sign complying with AS1319 positioned so the sign is visible throughout the area served by the shower.

    The area around the eyewash shall be well illuminated.
