Emergency Eye & Face Wash Units
In an emergency situation, seconds count - especially when it comes to eye injuries. Our emergency eye wash stations are ideally suited to factories, warehouses, workshops, chemical plants, foundries, petrol stations, garages, laboratories, or any workplace where hazardous or corrosive chemicals are used.
We understand that no two workplaces are alike, and that each has its own unique requirements. That’s why we sell emergency eye and face wash equipment with a variety of installation options, from wall mounted eye wash stations, to pedestal eyewash stations, to freestanding eye wash units. We also sell emergency eye wash stations with foot and hand operation to give users greater control in situations involving injuries to multiple parts of the body.
If you undertake a lot of remote work, you may also be interested in our portable eye wash stations, which are designed for use during site work, especially in areas with limited or no access to clean water. These units can store eye washing water safely for up to six months, after which time it can be easily replaced.

All of the emergency eye and face wash pods sold on Safety-Eyewash.co.uk come with high visibility yellow detailing, meaning that they can be easily and swiftly located even in situations where a worker’s eyesight is compromised. We use only the most robust materials in our emergency eye wash products: ABS plastic, polyurethane and stainless steel.
Thousands of eye injuries occur in UK workplaces every year, and of these it is estimated that 10-20% lead to partial or full loss of sight. After exposure to a corrosive substance, the first 15 seconds are paramount; access to an emergency eye wash unit can mean the difference between a full recovery and permanent eye damage, which could in turn result in partial or even total blindness.
The eyes are among the most important and vulnerable organs of the body - you owe it to yourself and your coworkers to give them the protection they deserve. Of course, prevention is always better than cure: when working with corrosive chemicals, you should always wear the appropriate safety equipment, such as safety goggles, safety gloves and protective aprons.
About the ANSI regulations
All of the emergency eye wash equipment supplied on Safety-Eyewash.co.uk is compliant with ANSI Z358-1. These regulations, which are set down by the American National Standards Institute, govern the way in which safety eye wash units and emergency showers are installed, used, maintained and tested.
In terms of eye and face wash units, the regulations set out the required water temperature and flow rate, as well guidance on the location of the facilities. The regulations also state that all eyewash fountains must be activated and inspected on a weekly basis to ensure reliable operation; accordingly, all of our eye and face wash stations come with a weekly inspection tag. See our guide to the ANSI regulation for further information and practical advice.
