Testing safety showers and eyewash stations at South Gippsland Water sites is a messy but important job.


Basic testing of this emergency equipment is required under Australian Standards (AS 4775 - 2008) on a weekly basis to ensure they will operate properly in an emergency situation, and a more technical procedure of checking flow rates and spray dispersion patterns is completed annually.


A weekly testing routine is undertaken by SGW staff and the corporation engage ‘Absorb’ on an annual basis to ensure legal compliance and all safety showers and eyewash stations are working to their best capacity should an emergency occur.
