Safety Showers - Use & Testing

To use:

  • Pull the handle down to turn on.

  • Push handle up to stop flow when finished.
  • If possible, the shower water should be retained for Environmental Health and Safety.
  • Report all accidents to the laboratory supervisor and the department chair.

To test:
