Locate the safety shower in or near your lab before an emergency arises. Keep the area around the safety shower clear for easy access during an emergency.
Use a safety shower in the event of a chemical exposure to the skin. Report all exposures and injuries to a supervisor.
Safety showers are inspected and flushed annually by Facilities Planning and Management (FP&M). Contact FP&M at (515)-294-5100 to verify that your safety shower has been tested within the last year.
