Rapid response to prevent eye damage

Rapid response to prevent eye damage

As chemicals in the eye can cause serious damage within 1-5 seconds, it is particularly important to provide emergency projection even in remote locations where plumbed emergency eyewashes may not be available.

Tobin Eyewash systems from Enware Australia can provide the vital first response required even in areas such as mineral processing, engineering, construction, bushfire fighting and dust suppression and extraction operations involving potentially aggressive substances.

The internationally proven eye protection Tobin Eyewash Systems which includes Tobin saline eyewash bottles available in quick access hanging systems which are designed for the workplace to provide excellent first response to injury. Important safety features of the Tobin Eyewash include:

  • Bottle Cap/Air vent – The bottle hangs by its cap and is opened simply by breaking this off.
  • Flow – Each bottle contains 1 litre of sterile saline solution 0.9% and provides approximately three minutes of flow.
  • Eye Support Ring – This facilitates prolonged washing and washing during transportation to a doctor.
  • No Mechanical Parts – The bottle is simple to open and easy to use with no moving parts which can malfunction.
  • The Open Bottle – The bottle is designed to stop people saving unused liquid or refilling the bottle with other liquids
  • Single Use – The fact that the bottle is disposable is a very important safety feature, because sterile liquid must not be saved in an open bottle. The Tobin eyewash bottle cannot be refilled.
  • Round Bottom – This safety design feature prevents bottles being able to stand alone, which helps remove the temptation to take bottles from the stand and place them close to bottles with other contents.
  • Bottom Air vent – When the air vent is activated it lets air into the bottle and insures the eye is washed by a soft continuous flow.

Tobin’s Eyewash Systems are a well proven, quick and safe way to wash chemicals from the eyes. This specially designed system gives fast application and a volume large enough for most eye accidents. Clear simple instructions for use are on each bottle and are also on Tobin stands. Each bottle shows the recommended expiry date. Tobin Eyewash offers three different variations. The units are available in portable, compact and permanent fixtures.

Tobin Eyewash Systems join Enware’s broad families of safety and environmental technologies, including Enware emergency shower and decontamination technology manufactured in Australia to comply with the toughest regulations covering workplace safety.
