Enware’s latest spill protection, safety showers and eyewashes feature at Safety in Action 2013
One of the world’s leading ranges of portable spill containment equipment – along with some of Australia’s leading emergency shower and eyewash technology - are among the crucial safety systems that will be on display at the Enware Australia stand I31 at Safety in Action 2013 at the Melbourne Exhibition Centre March 19-21.
Enware’s comprehensive ranges of Enpac spill containment products are being introduced by Enware to help remove risks from the workplace and counter the human and financial cost of industrial accidents and incidents affecting workers and the environment .
Work-related injury and illness incidents are now estimated to cost more than $60 billion a year, according to Safe Work Australia, while financial penalties for water and air polluters can be as much as $1million for a corporation or even jail for individuals in cases of aggravated offences.
Enware’s range of easily handled relocatable spill-containment products are custom-designed to protect the environment and workers from the many hazardous chemicals found in industrial, civil, municipal, mining and military applications.
The flexible portable and robust containment products - constructed from high-grade specialised polymers to resist diverse ranges of fuel and chemicals - are produced by one of the world’s leading manufacturers of spill prevention, containment and control products, ENPAC, which has decades of experience in delivering optimum performance and best value in design engineering and production capacity.
“Our display will underline the leading role that Enware plays in the provision of industrial and commercial safety equipment in the emergency hazard protection and spill prevention categories,” said Allan Lane, Business Development Manager, Safety for Enware Australia.
Enpac portable spill protection solutions to be shown at Safety in Action 2013 are available in a wide range of sizes, suitable for accommodating small storage containers, up to IBC units, or even vehicles. Products shown at Safety in Action will include examples from ranges such as:
- SPILLPAL™ drum containment units
- STINGER™ Yellow Jacket - Chemical lightweight pallets*
- STINGER Snap-Up™ Berm – Hydrocarbon for large-scale immediate spill response
- STINGER Snap-Foam™ Berm – Hydrocarbon for drive-in -drive-out applications
- and STINGER SPILLPAL™ instant containment berm with removable foam sidewalls.
The ranges’ enhanced chemical resistance is ideal for major sectors such as construction, defence, infrastructure engineering and mining.
Enware’s safety shower, eyewash and spill protection technology is focused on industrial worksites where serious injury can occur if eye and skin accidents are not treated within seconds. The products are particularly applicable to mining, oil, gas, heavy engineering and energy plants.
“Experts agree the most important first aid for accidents involving eye or skin contact with injurious materials is copious water irrigation within seconds,” said Mr Lane.
Enware Australia’s range of emergency safety showers and eye/face washes feature breakthrough technology that quickly removes contaminants and irritants from the face, body and eyes.
Designed and manufactured in Australia, the high-visibility showers and eyewashes have been independently tested for compliance to ANSI Z358.1-2009 and AS4775-2007 standards.
Enware’s Tobin eyewash systems, meanwhile, provide an effective, sterile and safe eyewash for industrial use, founded on the principle that an eyewash should be quick, simple and safe to use.
The unique shape of the Tobin bottle ensures that even a temporarily blinded and confused person can identify it as safety eyewash.
Tobin eyewash systems give the fastest possible application combined with a wash volume large enough for most eye accidents.
