This paper shares the 7 steps organisations need to take to ensure that they meet the requirements of standard-making bodies worldwide and to also establish a culture of ethics, integrity and compliance.
Federal safety regulations set forth by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and The
American National Standards Institute (ANSI) make the importance of safety equipment in potentially dangerous
working environments clear. The stringent guidelines for emergency showers and eyewashes, however, donít
extend to the inclusion of mandatory alarm and electronic monitoring systems on this equipment.
Implementing best practices with the addition of both alarm and wireless monitoring systems is the best way for
workplaces to exceed normal expectations by creating superior emergency response procedures. From initiating an emergency response as soon as safety equipment is engaged to maintaining detailed records of when stations are used, tested, and maintained, these wireless systems can
create safer, more responsive working environments. Not only will this help ensure employee safety, it can make it easier for facilities to stay in compliance with OSHA and ANSI standards.
