Contact us to discuss your service requirements.

Regular maintenance

Regular maintenance of emergency safety shower and eye/face wash equipment is essential to ensure correct functionality.

  • A weekly activation must be performed and recorded to ensure a full history is maintained as per International standard requirements. All equipment should be visually inspected and activated at least once a week to ensure it is operating properly, to clear the line of any sediment build up and check that the water runs clear.
  • Shower heads, nozzles and diffusers must all be kept clean to prevent build up of debris/bacteria. If you have electrical equipment this must be visually inspected on a regular basis to check for any damage.
  • If any of your showers are temporarily out of service consider renting a unit from Hughes while they are undergoing maintenance.


Accidental damage to your safety shower or eye wash must be rectified immediately to ensure it's not out of action for an extended period of time.
