Safety Showers are essential pieces of equipment on site … when they work effectively. When ambient temperatures soar however, Safety Showers become a hazard.
- Line temperatures reach well above the AS4775 recommended maximum safe water temperature
- People are at risk of getting scalded
- Dangerous Legionella bacteria grows rapidly in the stagnant potable water supply lines
In addition, the anti-scald devices which are designed to flush hot water out of safety shower supply lines, are constantly running, wasting thousands of litres of potable water per day.
