Elppe Chemicals Pvt. Ltd., Roha, Raigad, Mr. R. G. Khandekar an EHS Manager, tells about the effective use of Diphoterine over chemical incident
Effectiveness of Diphoterine over chemical incident
Diphoterine is an Active Solution and it Simplifies emergency and because of its rapid intervention and it is easy to use. As per the factories act it is mandatory to have water showers at a distance of 15 m in a plant using corrosive chemicals.
This is however not always very easy as the water showers need maintenance every day, to ensure there is no accumulation of scale deposits or rust formation in pipes. In case of Diphoterine the product is portable and doesn’t require any maintenance for 2 years. The product can be brought to the victim who may be in acute pain as a result of a chemical burn and be unable to move.
This would enable workers operating in remote locations of the plant or at heights or doing maintenance work to easily carry the products with them. Since its an active solution it does the job of water in just a 500 ml eye bottle or a 200 ml spray for immediate use as per protocol. This puts the staff handling corrosive products at ease.
We are very happy to keep Diphoterine Solution with us so in case of accidents we can treat the victim immediately on site.
We recommend all companies handling corrosive chemicals in their plant or labs to equip themselves with these very useful first aid devices.
