Outdoor Safety Preparedness
Emergencies can occur outside just as much as they can occur inside of your establishment. Despite this fact, most people focus primarily on hazards and risks that can occur indoors and limit safety procedures to what is foreseeable internally. Sadly this means that outdoor safety preparedness is minimal to non-existent. It may be a little more difficult to control what happens outside especially when you, your facility, and your equipment are exposed to the elements. Difficulty however, should not deter importance. Consider these few ways to amp up your outdoor safety and emergency preparedness.
Outdoor Emergency showers
Spills and incidents alike can occur outdoor.Whatever the case, our company provides Outdoor Emergency showers; both unheated and heated to combat splashes and other hazardous risks to the eye, face, and body.

EmergencyShowers.com carries an inclusive range of outdoor self-contained eyewash & showers specialized to meet your industrial needs. The benefit of both heated and unheated equipment is the climate flexibility. In other words, the emergency equipment can accommodate the environment it is in.
Reflective lights, walkways, and signs
Visibility is a prime challenge in outdoor emergency situations. One of the best ways to combat this challenge is by incorporating reflective lights, walkways, and signs. This is beneficial primarily at night. Reflectors can be incorporated to guide and direct individuals to safety zones and emergency equipment. In addition, ensure that your industrial facility is well lit and light checks are done periodically to account for visibility.
Phones and Safe zones
Designate an area as a safe zone that is isolated from hazardous chemicals, materials, or any other potential harm. Further, have working phone sites that will allow individuals to call emergency personnel such as the fire department or police.
Your facility should have lights or alarms that sound in the event of an outdoor emergency so that individuals are notified and aware of the need to attend to the safe zones.
