With temperatures soon set to plummet, are your emergency safety showers and eye baths ready for the winter months? Are you certain your shower heater is fully functioning? Are feed pipes lagged and traced? Is there any exposed pipework that could freeze?
If you can’t answer a confident “yes” to all of those questions then the cold snap could render your emergency safety showers and eye baths useless, putting your workforce at risk.
It is the duty of every employer to ensure the health, safety and welfare at work of every employee and this includes the maintenance of safety equipment. Failure to do so can result in significant fines and/or imprisonment.
Here’s where we can help.
