Safety Tip of the Week:

Week of May 20, 2019

When it comes to understanding body armor there can be confusion over which type of body armor protects against which type of ammunition.  Understanding the NIJ 0101.06 armor protection levels is clearly explained.  The term "Bullet Proof" is a widely used term that is inaccurate and paints a picture that it cannot be penetrated.  Any body armor has the potential to be penetrated.  There are various levels of protection that must be adhered to in the law enforcement world.  The (Justice Technology Information Center) JTIC Understanding NIJ 0101.06 Armor Protection Levels is a snapshot of the projectile threats and classification of body armor related to these threats.  Here is NIJ complete info on Body Armor


Drench Showers

Drench Shower - Safety Drench Showers

A drench shower is a necessary component for a workplace that handles hazardous chemicals and acids that can splash on the skin and clothing of a worker.


Drench Showers also known as Deluge Showers dilute chemical splashes or spills on the body while providing immediate full body coverage.  The skin and body can be permanently damaged within seconds of the spill or splash from a hazardous material if not drenched with the proper shower.  The water supply from the unit “shall provide 20 gallons of water per minute for a full 15 minutes.”  (ANSI Section 4.1.2,4.5.5).

If it is determined that chemical splashes could result in face or eye injury along with chemical splashes on the body then a combination shower with an eye wash station and drench shower should be used in place of a regular drench or deluge shower if it is determined that chemical splashes could result in face or eye injury. A thorough analysis and review of the work area will help make this determination.
