Honeywell publishes whitepaper detailing emergency eyewash best practices and hidden dangers
New document informs industrial health and safety managers of safe and effective treatment
Honeywell (NYSE: HON) announced today it has published a new whitepaper entitled “How to Identify Safe and Effective Emergency Eyewash – and the Hidden Dangers to Avoid.” Authored by the world leader in personal protective equipment, including a broad line of emergency eyewash, this nine-page publication from Honeywell Safety Products serves as an invaluable resource to everyone responsible for industrial health and safety. The whitepaper is available now for download in English and French at www.honeywellsafety.com/USA/Eyewash_Training.
“Our in-depth experience with customers around the world shows there are still a lot of questions about proper emergency eyewash selection, installation, maintenance and usage. Beyond that, there is a lack of awareness for the many ways that improper eyewash practices can further damage an already compromised eye – at a huge expense to workers and employers alike,” said Kelly Piotti, senior product manager for Honeywell Safety Products. “We developed this whitepaper to support safety and facility managers in making informed decisions about not only the various types of eyewash devices and flushing fluids available, but also to warn against the less obvious dangers that require careful consideration.”
Readers will learn the latest national safety standards as well as equipment options and proper overall usage. Emergency eyewash flushing fluids are also detailed, including the differences between sterile and non-sterile fluids, buffered and Ph balanced fluids, manufacturing processes and other possible sources of harmful impurities. By providing a comprehensive look at the facts behind the safe and effective treatment of industrial eye injuries, Honeywell aims to reduce the impact of recordable eye injuries and support every organization’s overall safety culture.
Honeywell is the world’s leading manufacturer of industrial eyewash stations and flushing fluids. From founding the first portable emergency eyewash units to developing the first sterile flushing fluid, Honeywell delivers the utmost in innovation for the most trusted, safe and effective eye care.
