Introduction

Emergency safety body showers for sites other than laboratories are designed and intended to be

installed in close range of persons working in a potentially hazardous area exposed to the risks of

burning/burns and/or hazardous chemical substances getting splashed onto all or part of the body.

The main purpose of these devices is to deliver immediately a flushing fluid in a volume sufficient to

extinguish flames and/or to flush the body following exposure to injurious substances or heat.

Once this is accomplished, the injured person can proceed to medical care.
