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

Lab Shower

A Lab Shower should be installed in a laboratory or very close to the lab. A lab is not safe without one.  If a chemical or infectious material splashes or is spilled on someone in the lab, an emergency shower is the first line of defense in washing and diluting the harmful substance from the body.
There are several types of lab showers available for the safety of workers in the lab:
  • Recessed Shower Head in ceiling with recessed wall activator
  • Recessed Showers with ceiling pull rods
  • Combination lab showers
  • Lab Showers that are wheelchair accessible
With all of the choices available that can fit perfectly in a laboratory setting, having a small room or space should not be a deterrent for providing a shower in your lab.
