Since eye wash stations should be flushed on a regular basis, it would be difficult for the BAS to differentiate between a test and an emergency based on water flow.

Dear all,

Do any of you have experience about having your eye washers &/or safety showers connected to a Building Automation System (BAS)? I can understand the benefit in a remote location, where a response team can be alerted if this equipment is activated, but it seems overkill in a University lab.

Can I get some opinions please?


Thanks, Paul
