This European Standard is a product specification, giving minimum performance requirements for non plumbed-in emergency safety body showers. It is applicable to body showers filled with a washing fluid by the manufacturer and to empty devices to be filled prior to putting into service. Both variations are for first aid use when the body or parts of the body have been exposed to harmful substances or heat. Requirements are also given concerning labelling, marking and information to be supplied by the manufacturer. Throughout this standard, the term non plumbed-in emergency safety body shower is referred to as body shower.
