Safety Tip of the Week:

An eye wash station is necessary in all industries that handle chemicals and hazardous materials.  The temperature of the flushing fluid is just as important outdoors as indoors.  Most are concerned about the temperature in the winter going below 60 degrees and not being ANSI compliant, but another concern is the flushing fluid exceeding 100 degrees.  This can happen in industrial areas without air conditioning and outdoors where sun  exposure heats the water to uncomfortable levels.  When installing an eye wash station, take into consideration all seasons and climate changes.

Class 2 Safety Vest

A Class 2 Safety Vest provide a relatively high level of visibility in moderately high risk environments. Class 2 is the middle level of protection. They are used in environments that are higher risk than where Class 1 vests are required but not quite as risky as where Class 3 Vests would be needed. Class 2 Safety Vests were first defined in ANSI-107-2004 which was updated to ANSI-107-2010.
