Haws Corporation Tempered Water Nevada USA, Singapore: Trends in Emergency Eyewashes/Showers

Repost from Safety & Health article by Tracy Haas

Equipment reliability is imperative

Unlike personal protective equipment such as hard hats and steel-toe boots, emergency eyewashes and showers are not meant to be used every day. Ideally, a worker will never need one. But should an incident such as a chemical splash occur, it’s vital that emergency eyewashes and showers be ready for use.


Because emergency eyewashes and showers are not frequently used, their maintenance may not always be top of mind. “The two most common emergency shower misuses are not providing ANSI-required tepid water and failing to conduct weekly test activations to ensure the units are working,” said Ryan Pfund, senior product manager, emergency fixtures, for Menomonee Falls, WI-based Bradley Corp. Pfund recommends establishing a weekly inspection program to test your company’s eyewash and shower equipment to ensure it is working properly and providing tepid water instantaneously. “Manufacturers provide specially designed devices and materials to assist in testing,” he added.

Nuray Ebel, product manager at Sparks, NV-based Haws, echoed Pfund’s comment that ANSI Z358.1-required weekly testing – although crucial – is often neglected: “The most significant part of the weekly test is the validation that the equipment provides proper first aid to users – not just ensuring water is present.”

Keith Flamich, marketing manager for Chicago-based Guardian Equipment, notes that equipment reliability is imperative. “During incidents where emergency eyewash and shower units are activated, far too much is at stake to depend on equipment that is not properly tested and not third-party certified,” Flamich said.

What’s new

Emergency eyewashes and showers now have improved flow control and coverage, according to Pfund. “The newest models apply fluid dynamics technology that works with a pressure-regulated flow control to provide an integral and uniform flow of water directed at the affected area,” he said.

Flamich pointed to the increasing popularity of heat-traced freeze-resistant stations in cold-weather environments. “These units are manufactured with a heat-tracing cable wrapped around internal piping to prevent the freezing of standing water within the unit,” he said. “Once activated, a safety station first delivers the standing water before drawing from a tepid water supply.” However, he cautioned that these stations are commonly misunderstood, and people often believe the units are capable of heating a full 15-minute supply of water per the ANSI Z358.1 tepid water requirement. “The reality is that these units heat only the standing water contained within its internal piping prior to unit activation,” Flamich explained. “As such, there must be continuous source of tepid water supplying the heat-traced safety station (i.e., thermostatic mixing valve, tepid water loop, or instantaneous water heater) to meet the ANSI-required 15-minute tepid water flush.”

On a separate note, Ebel spoke of the benefits of using wireless alarm technology for emergency eyewashes and showers. “Wireless transmitters enable control and/or notification from remote areas where wiring or wire maintenance is not physically possible or economically feasible.”

How to reject the shipment to certain countries

Consider an e-commerce website wants to set orders that will be shipped to certain shipping countries for manual review or reject it in order to reduce fraud orders. In this use case, let's say every transaction that has Malaysia set as shipping country needs to be rejected. FraudLabs Pro allows you to configure it using fraud detection rules.

  1. Login to the FraudLabs Pro Merchant Control Panel.
  2. Click on the Rules menu.
  3. Add the new rule "Shipping Country". Set the condition to "Within" and pick "Enter Countries Below". Select "Malaysia" as the value.

  1. Select the Reject action.
  2. Click on the Add Rule button.

When there is an order that has set the shipping country as Malaysia, FraudLabs Pro will automatically filter and reject this order.

If you want to reject an order that has set Malaysia as billing country, you can do so by adding new rule.

  1. Login to the FraudLabs Pro Merchant Control Panel.
  2. Click on the Rules menu.
  3. Add the new rule "Billing Country". Set the condition to "Within" and pick "Enter Countries Below". Select "Malaysia" as the value.

  1. Select the Reject action.
  2. Click on the Add Rule button.

When there is an order that has billing country set as Malaysia, FraudLabs Pro will automatically filter and reject this order.

Group Holiday in Southbourne Dorset: Things to do in Bloomsbury, Greater London


Bloomsbury in London is the southern area of the Borough of Camden right next to Soho, yet it is quite the opposite when it comes to character! While Soho is the prodigal son, Bloomsbury is the classy daughter of London.

The area is famous as the home of the influential "Bohemian Set" in the early 20th century. These elite artists and writers included John Maynard Keynes, Clive Bell, Virginia Woolf. E.M. Forster and Lytton Strachey and many of them lived as neighbors in Gordon Square.

Some of London's oldest buildings can be found in the area around Holborn as the Great Fire of London failed to raze this area in 1666. The cobbled alleyways, law courts and historic halls of London's legal profession can all be seen here, exuding their centuries-old history and antiquated traditions at Gray's Inn, Inner Temple, Middle Temple and Lincoln's Inn. These are the areas where many trial lawyers conveniently have their offices, and despite their names they have nothing to do with either religion or drinking!


Present Day Bloomsbury

Filled with beautiful buildings, Bloomsbury is where you will find the British Museum, the campus of the University of London and the British Library. London's Museum Mile stretches from the Strand along Kingsway to Euston Road and has plenty of historic homes, parks and museums along the way.

The best known square in Bloomsbury is Russell Square, the largest square in London. It has beautiful central gardens which are locked and privately owned by the residents of the surrounding elegant townhouses.

The grand four-story Georgian houses on Bedford Square were built around 1775 as a residential area and named after the main landlords, the Dukes of Bedford. The architecture is now Grade I listed.

Theatre-goers will head to Bloomsbury for matinees and evening performances at the Dominion Theatre, which has an excellent schedule of musicals, also the Bloomsbury Theatre.

Bloomsbury also features in the novel, Peter Pan, as the home of the Darling family.


Things to Do in Bloomsbury

The British Museum is one of the most popular attractions in London. Located in a striking neoclassic building, it is crammed with ancient treasures and artifacts including the Rosetta Stone, a collection of Egyptian mummies and the Elgin Marbles.

The Charles Dickens Museum in Bloomsbury will be of interest to literature fans. It is set in the furnished house where Dickens lived from 1837 to 1839 and where he wrote Oliver Twist, Pickwick Papers and other classic novels.

Fitzroy House on Fitzroy Street was the home where playwright George Bernard Shaw once lived. Later, in the late 1950s, L. Ron Hubbard, the founder of Scientology worked here and the building is still in a 1950s time warp. It has free admission and tours can be arranged by appointment. The Sir John Soane's Museum also has a colorful collection of exhibits telling his life story.

The Cartoon Museum is the place to go for some light relief and not only has a vast collection of old cartoons, but also many comics on display.

Coram's Fields is a public children's play area with a pet's corner and sports pitches. Adults may only enter if accompanying a child!

Things to do in Dorset by Group Holiday in Southbourne Dorset


Dorset is situated on the south coast of England, between Devon in the west and Hampshire in the east - much of the County is designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Few major roads run through the county, allowing Dorset to retain much of its rural character and charm.

Dorset is a delightful county, with a variety of contrasting landscapes, consisting of coastline with high cliffs, inland there are wooded hills and fertile valleys, rolling chalk hills and wild heath-land.

There are several interesting towns along the coast, starting in the east at Christchurch, a Saxon town on the estuaries of the Rivers Avon and Stour, with a picturesque harbour and magnificent 11th century Priory Church.

Bournemouth is a vibrant city, with beautiful sandy beaches, gardens, shopping, night life and entertainment for holiday makers. Poole has the second largest natural harbour in the world after Sydney - you can explore the old quarter by the quayside, with many historic buildings.

'The Isle of Purbeck' is a coastal peninsula below Pool harbour. The towns of Wareham, encircled by its original Saxon walls and home of the oldest church in Dorset, and Swanage, a seaside resort and home to the famous local Purbeck stone often referred to as 'marble', are worth visiting. Nearby, the historic village of Corfe Castle is a beauty spot not to miss.

Weymouth is a popular seaside town with many interesting family attractions. Bridport also has a Dorset Tourist Information centre - the town is known for rope and net making and still makes tennis nets for Wimbledon, the All England Tennis Club.

Portland is connected to the mainland by a causeway at the eastern end of Chesil Beach, a barren pebbled beach, stretching from Weymouth to Bridport. In the hills behind the Chesil Bank, the old village of Abbotsbury is famous for the 600 year old bird sanctuary, Abbotsbury Swannery. Portland is the origin of the stone used by Sir Christopher Wren for St. Paul's Cathedral and for the UN headquarters in New York.

West Dorset's coast is known as 'Jurassic Coast' - it has been awarded World Heritage Site status, and consists of rocks formed during the Jurassic Period. This 25 mile stretch is fossil hunting country, with the beaches around Charmouth and Lyme Regis being the best places to hunt for fossils. Call at the tourist information centre in Lyme Regis for a guide to the area.

Lyme Regis is a charming historic town set on cliffs overlooking a spectacular bay with a 13th century harbour known as 'The Cob'. On a visit to Lyme Regis, Jane Austen was inspired to make it the setting for 'Persuasion', it was also the setting for John Fowles book 'A French Lieutenants Woman'.

Inland, large areas of Dorset are designated as Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, such as the Blackmore Vale in the north of the County, a delightful rural area with a lush landscape, with many footpaths and bridal ways. The Dorset Downs in the centre of the County consists of chalk hillsides and, to the south, ancient woodland.

At Cerne Abbas, you can see the Cerne Abbas Giant, carved into the chalk hillside. Cranborne Chase, was once a royal hunting forest, where the deer can still be spotted and native wildlife and plants flourish.

Other towns of note include:

Blandford Forum - a gracious Georgian town on the banks of the River Stour, with a fine church and town hall and host to the Great Dorset Steam Fair each September.

Dorchester is the County town, where you can still see the remains of the original Roman town wall. Dorchester is at the heart of Thomas Hardy country - his birthplace at nearby Higher Brockhampton, and Max Gate, his home in the town, can both be visited.

Shaftsbury is a gem of a Saxon hill top town, founded by Alfred the Great. The Abbey ruins and herb gardens are open to the public. Gold Hill behind the town hall, is a steep cobbled street with tiny cottages, a quintessential English scene.

Sherborne, in the north of the County has a medieval high street, a superb 15th century Abbey and two castles.

Wimborne Minster is named for its Minster church, which is unique for having two towers, a lantern tower of the late Norman period, and a later western tower of the 15th century. Visit the miniature town with 300 model buildings.

Known as the Lion city, the Garden city and the Red dot, Singapore is one of the most popular tourist destinations of South-East Asia. So if you’re thinking of a short holiday not too far from India? Look no further than Singapore – the dynamic city-state, a short flight away from all major cities in India.

Here’s a three day itinerary to experience the best of Singapore.

Day 1

Book a direct flight to Singapore and try and get there early to make the most of your short vacation. Begin your holiday in Singapore’s cultural heart – Chinatown. Dotted with pagodas, mosques and shops, it is a bustling ethnic neighbourhood. You can take a walking tour of Chinatown or if your visit coincides with either the Singapore Heritage Festival or Mid Autumn Festival, you’ll have plenty to do. Shop for some ethnic products and artifacts here. Then, head to Kreta Ayer’s Food Street or to one of the trendy restaurants in Telok Ayer for lunch. Visit Orchard Road, Singapore’s shopping district, for high-end shopping in world-class malls housing multi-national brands. Orchard road gets it’s name from the all the surrounding orchards that existed during the 20th century. After rehabilitation, The Orchard Road is flanked by pedestrian shopping centres, upmarket cafes, coffee chains, nightclubs and hotels. It is also the official site of residence and office of the President of Singapore, The Istana.

Day 2

Head out to explore the city’s Civic District with its imposing buildings housing the City Hall, the Parliament House and Supreme Court. The Padang Cricket Club is also worth a visit. Then, head to see one of Singapore’s most important landmarks – the Merlion statue in Merlion Park. The park was initially designed to act as an emblem of The Singapore Tourism Board. Take your picture with this mythical part lion, part fish creature. The picturesque Marina Bay with its long promenade, the Marina Bay City Gallery and the 101-hectare Gardens by the Bay are other must-dos.

Day 3

Visit Asia’s only Hollywood theme park Universal Studios, and lose yourself in the magical world of movies.

Bacall Associates - Travel Guide in Singapore

Singapore is a cosmopolitan city-state that became independent from the British in 1965 and is now one of the world’s leading economic centers in shipping and banking – Singapore is expensive by Southeast-Asian standards, with everything costing about double what it does elsewhere in the region. While most people come here for a couple of days just “to do” Singapore, I love this city and think it deserves longer than that. There’s a lot to do here, some great parks by the Malaysian border, and incredible (and cheap) Chinese and Indian food. Singapore is also moving beyond its sterile image and fast becoming a city with world-class nightlife.

Typical Costs

Accommodation – Accommodation isn’t cheap in Singapore. A night in a hostel dorm will cost around 15-30 SGD, and a budget hotel starts at 50 SGD for a basic double room with fan. Most hotels here are around 80-110 SGD per night.

Food – There are plenty of low-cost eateries around Singapore with street stalls typically selling food for less than 6 SGD per meal. Chinese and Indian food is usually around 8-9 SGD per meal. Most casual restaurants are around 20 SGD and after that, the sky is the limit.

Transportation – There are plenty of buses and taxis around Singapore, but the Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) runs the length and breadth of the country. MRT tickets vary in price, as they are based on the distance traveled, but generally cost around 4 SGD.

Activities – On the whole, activities in Singapore are not that expensive. Some, like the Singapore Botanical Gardens and Bukit Timah Nature Reserve, are free.  Entrance to Singapore Zoo is 32 SGD and Underwater World is 29 SGD.

Money Saving Tips

Take public transit – Travel on public transport is just 10 SGD per day for tourists with a Singapore Tourist Pass. This will get you unlimited rides on a number of buses and trains.

Eat on Smith Street – The stalls here offer food for less than 6 SGD and are a great place to sample local snacks.

Eat cheap – Save money on food by eating in Little India, Chinatown, or the hawker stalls throughout the town. Meals in these places cost only a few dollars.

Top Things to See and Do

Visit Singapore Zoo – This zoo is one of the best in the world and also one of the top attractions in Singapore. Covering an area of 70 acres, this place is huge and has a vast array of animals: over 3,600 mammals, birds and reptiles. The zoo’s night safaris are hugely popular, offering visitors the chance the get up close and personal with nocturnal animals. Entrance to the zoo and a night safari costs 71 SGD. Watch out though, there’s no food around here and since you have to wait for the night safari to begin, you get stuck eating the overpriced zoo food. See the zoo in the morning and come back at night for the safari.

Eat at the Boat Quay – Boat Quay is a hive of activity and is the place to go for dining and entertainment. The alfresco pubs and restaurants also make Boat Quay ideal for relaxing after a long day of sightseeing. Be sure to bring a camera to capture the imposing skyscrapers and bizarre statues along the riverside.

Hang out (and party) on Sentosa – This little island getaway is popular with locals and tourists alike. Head to the Tiger Sky Tower, Asia’s tallest observation tower. At 450 feet, it offers amazing views over Singapore and Sentosa. The Underwater World aquarium is the main attraction on the island; walk through tunnels below sharks, piranhas and eels. Universal Studios is also located on the island. You have to pay to get on to Sentosa. The cost to get there on the Sentosa Express is 4 SGD.

Admire Thian Hock Keng Temple – Stunning architecture makes Thian Hock Keng one of the most photogenic buildings you’re likely to see in Singapore. The temple was made from the finest materials and best craftsmen that China had to offer around the time of its construction in the 1840s. The temple was designated as a national monument in 1973.
