Customer Feedback

We appreciate our customers at Enviro Safety Products. While we’re always collecting feedback, from time to time we get some outstanding letters like these:

“My recent purchase from ya’ll was more or less a ‘test drive’ of your company. I had researched many other companies for the products I wanted and found yours had what I wanted in stock and price reasonably. I was astonished how quickly they arrived! I had ordered something else from another company also in your area a few days before I placed my order with ya’ll an that arrived four days after I got yours! I will definitely be placing all my orders in the future with ya’ll. I am really impressed with you.”

Thank you much,
Coco Navarro

“You guys helped me so much! I was having the hardest time ever replacing the freaking batteries on my Peltor Tac 6 Headset. Don’t get me wrong, I’m happy with my headset but when the time came to replace the batteries I couldn’t do it. So that’s when I decided to call you guys. I spoke with Sam in customer service and she emailed me step by step instructions and stayed on the phone with me until I figured it out. The following day I received a follow up email with a link to a video posted on your blog. It was a video on how to replace the batteries on the Peltor Tactical 6! Your staff is so helpful and the video is a great touch for other customers who run into the same problem.”

Eye Wash Stations

Guardian Eye Wash StationMany people work in environments with hazardous chemicals on a daily basis but few are protected from accidental exposure to the eye. Anywhere there is chemical hazard, you need eyewash protection – paint shops, medical facilities, photo labs, auto maintenance shops, restaurants, hotels, pharmacies, mortuaries – not just in your standard lab.

If you have wall or counter space to spare and are going for a less expensive approach, a conventional eyewash station would be best. You can choose a wall mounted eyewash station or a deck mounted eyewash station, both ANSI compliant. “Stand-alone” eyewashes are also available and are usually combined with an emergency shower. Last but not least, you can go with a portable eyewash station. Portable eyewash stations do not require costly plumbing. These stations provide you with eyewash safety, reliability and value; usually lasting four times longer than primary self-contained eyewash devices.

Leaving an eyewash station out of your design puts a facility at risk for an OSHA citation. In addition, ANSI Z358.I requires locating an eyewash within 10 seconds of a hazard.

OSHA 29 CFR 1910.151,subpart k, section c
“Where the eyes or body of any person may be exposed to injurious corrosive materials, suitable facilities for quick, drenching or flushing of the eyes and body shall be provided within the work for immediate emergency use.”
