Stuff Happens. Bradley Safety/Industrial Division Comes Through.

Even the most careful worker in the safest plant can have an incident. Stuff happens. Although an ounce of prevention is still, in fact, worth a pound of cure, sometimes the cure is necessary.

When the stuff that happens involves exposure to “injurious or corrosive materials1,” Bradley’s full range of eye wash and drench shower equipment options will make a major difference in your facility.

Bradley Safety/Industrial Division comes through. Their eye wash and drench shower equipment really performs when someone has been sprayed or splashed, been hit by flying debris or come into contact with hazardous materials, as a result of grinding, hammering, chipping, testing, pouring, storing, transporting or disposing operations.

If you are even remotely OSHA compliant, you probably have already installed this equipment in your facility. But, when was the last time you really looked at what you have to see if it:

  • Still works?
  • Is the right equipment?
  • Is properly located?
  • Meets current requirements?
  • Or can be correctly used by your work force?

Bradley will conduct a free facility tour2 and evaluation which will answer these and other critical questions, like:

  • Are you meeting ANSI standards?3
  • Are you working with the same hazards as one, five and ten years ago?
  • Is your water temperature compliant?
  • Have your production processes changed, necessitating an adjustment in your emergency fixture locations or performance options?

The free Bradley workplace evaluation includes an on-site, hands-on inspection and training that is conducted side-by-side with your plant’s workplace safety officials. The output includes a confidential evaluation with customized checklists, reference materials, measuring tools and other resources.

When the process is completed, your people will be trained and your facility will be equipped – and you will be prepared to respond to this type of on-the-job emergency – and ready to correctly maintain your equipment.

The immediate cost of an eye injury can easily run to $10,000. Add in the indirect costs, and you could be looking at $40,000. You may need additional sales revenue of over $800,000 just to break even. That’s hard to come by under current economic conditions.
