Safety: A Look at Handling an Eye Emergency

eyehealthTake prompt action and follow the steps below if you or someone else has an eye-related injury.

CHEMICALS IN THE EYE
1. Flush with cool tap water right away. Turn the person’s head so the injured eye is down and to the side. Holding the eyelid open, allow running water from the faucet to flush the eye for 15 minutes.
2. If both eyes are affected, or if the chemicals are also on other parts of the body, have the person take a shower.
3. If the person is wearing contact lenses and the lenses did not flush out from the running water, have the person try to remove the contacts after the flushing procedure.
4. Continue to flush the eye with clean water or saline while seeking urgent medical attention.
5. Seek medical help right away. Do not delay.

SMALL OBJECT ON THE EYE OR EYELID
The eye will often clear itself of tiny objects, like eyelashes and sand, through blinking and tearing. If not, take these steps:
1. Tell the person not to rub the eye. Wash your hands before examining it.
2. Examine the eye in a well-lighted area. To find the object, have the person look up and down, then from side to side.
3. If you cannot find the object, grasp the lower eyelid and gently pull down on it to look under the lower eyelid. To look under the upper lid, you can place a clean cotton-tipped swab on the outside of the upper lid and gently flip the lid over the cotton swab.
4. If the object is on an eyelid, try to gently flush it out with clean water. If that does not work, try touching a second cotton-tipped swab to the object to remove it.
5. If the object is on the eye, try gently rinsing the eye with clean water. If available, use an eye dropper positioned above the outer corner of the eye. Do not touch the eye itself with the cotton swab.
A scratchy feeling or other minor discomfort may continue after removing eyelashes and other tiny objects. This will go away within a day or two. If the person continues to have discomfort or blurred vision, get medical help.

OBJECT STUCK OR EMBEDDED IN EYE
1. Leave the object in place. Do not try to remove the object. Do not touch it or apply any pressure to it.
2. Calm and reassure the person.
3. Wash your hands.
4. Bandage both eyes. If the object is large, place a paper cup or cone over the injured eye and tape it in place. Cover the uninjured eye with gauze or a clean cloth. If the object is small, cover both eyes with a clean cloth or sterile dressing. Even if only one eye is affected, covering both eyes will help prevent eye movement.
5. Get medical help right away. Do not delay.

EYE CUTS, SCRATCHES, OR BLOWS
1. Gently apply cold compresses to reduce swelling and help stop bleeding. Do not apply pressure to control bleeding.
2. If blood is pooling in the eye, cover both eyes with a clean cloth or sterile dressing.
3. Seek medical help right away. Do not delay.

EYELID CUTS
1. Carefully wash the eye. Place a patch over the eye. If the cut is bleeding, apply gentle pressure with a clean, dry cloth until the bleeding stops.
2. Rinse with water, cover with a clean dressing, and place a cold compress on the dressing to reduce pain and swelling.
3. Seek medical help right away. Do not delay.

DO NOT
• Do not press or rub an injured eye.
• Do not remove contact lenses unless rapid swelling is occurring, there is a chemical injury and the contacts did not come out with the water flush, or you cannot get prompt medical help.
• Do not attempt to remove a foreign body or any object that appears to be embedded in any part of the eye. Get medical help promptly.
• Do not use cotton swabs, tweezers, or anything else on the eye itself. Cotton swabs should only be used on the eyelid.

The first few seconds after exposure to a hazardous chemical (especially a corrosive chemical) are critical. Delaying treatment, even for a few seconds, may result in irreparable eye damage. Don’t hesitate!

Note: Some outdoor eye washes may run discolored (rusty) water for a few seconds. Don’t hesitate to use them immediately when needed.
Drains are rarely designed into floor plans to accommodate eye wash stations. Never let that stop you from using the equipment when needed.

The DOs and DO NOTs of DEF(Diesel Exhaust Fluid)…

Diesel Exhaust Fluid DEF- DO NOT use any other fluid in the DEF tank, such as diesel fuel, water, antifreeze, beverages, etc. Only use DEF that meets ISO 22241-1 standards.
– DO NOT use additives to prevent freezing.
– DO NOT make your own DEF solution. DEF must meet the ISO 22241-1 standard to prevent potential SCR system damage.
– DO NOT use incorrect dispensing materials, such as metal funnels, steel transfer containers, incorrect pumps, steel fittings, etc. Only use materials specifically designed for DEF.
– DO NOT use contaminated transfer containers. Only use clean containers that are dedicated for DEF.
– DO NOT fill the DEF tank without first cleaning the fill area.
– DO NOT store DEF in direct sunlight or in high ambient temperatures.
– DO NOT operate Cat products requiring DEF with an empty DEF tank. Always fill the DEF tank when refueling the product.
– DO NOT turn off the master disconnect until the “wait to disconnect” lamp turns off, unless an emergency requires immediate battery isolation.

UNDERSTANDING DIESEL EXHAUST FLUID
Is DEF corrosive?
Yes. DEF is corrosive to many different materials, proper dispensing equipment and practices must be utilized. Failure to use DEF specific tooling and fittings will result in corrosion and contamination of the DEF supply. As few as one incorrect fitting could contaminate the DEF supply and may lead to emission system faults and engine shutdown.

DEF spills should be cleaned immediately, and machine or engine surfaces should be wiped clean and rinsed with water.

What is Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF)?
Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) is a precisely mixed solution of 32.5% high purity chemical grade urea and 67.5% de-ionized water that is injected into the exhaust system to reduce NOx emissions in Catengines equipped with a Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) system. DEF used in Cat SCR systems must meet the requirements outlined in the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) standard 22241-1. ISO 22241-1 requirements are met by many brands of DEF, including those that carry the AdBlue or API certifications.

How much DEF will I need?
On Cat products equipped with a SCR system, DEF consumption is approximately 2-3% of fuel consumption depending on the product and application. The DEF tank has a 1:1 fill rate with the fuel tank. If fuel is added, DEF needs to be added. The DEF fill cap is an industry standard blue and easily identifiable on the product.

Are there storage requirements?
DEF should be stored in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area. The ideal storage temperature for DEF is between 15ºF and 77ºF (-9ºC and 25ºC). It should not be exposed to direct sunlight for long periods of time as the urea will decompose. Refer to ISO 22241-3 for further information regarding DEF handling, transportation and storage.

Is contamination a concern?
Yes. DEF cleanliness is extremely important as contaminants can degrade the life of DEF and SCR system components. Several points to consider are:

Clean the fill area prior to refilling
Avoid transfer containers when possible
If transfer containers are used, keep the container clean and dedicated for DEF

Customers Dig SITECH Machine Control Systems!

Steve Weddell During a recent New Product Introduction (NPI) training session in Henderson, SITECH Nevada Operations Manager Jason Widdison introduced the Trimble GCSFlex Machine Control System for Hydraulic Excavators (HEX). Machine Sales Rep Dale Arnold heard Jason’s presentation and thought that RP Weddell and Sons, a Las Vegas-based utility contractor that Dale has worked with for more than 25 years, would be the perfect candidate to benefit from the Trimble GCSFlex System. RP Weddell recently purchased a Cat 321 HEX and put it to work in a trenching application that requires precise grade control and improved efficiencies, the perfect application for the Trimble GCSFlex system. Dale met with Jason and they collaborated to plan a Trimble GCSFlex demo session.

“We invited them to Cashman after Toby [Robinson] and I installed the GCSFlex system on one of our inventory excavators,” said Jason. “Steve [Weddell] came over to test it out and ended up buying that Trimble GCSFlex on the spot for his excavator.”

The GCSFlex is a machine control system that monitors the real time position of the machine, the boom, and the bucket in relation to the surrounding geography. It shows the operator the exact location of the bucket in graphic form on a monitor mounted in the cab, so even if the operator can’t actually see the teeth of the bucket, he or she is still in full control. This system can exponentially increase the machine productivity, while increasing safety – customers don’t have to have surveyors or survey grade stacks near the machine or people close to the machine to monitor the bucket position.
“My customers are always looking for ways to be more productive while keeping a healthy bottom line,” said Dale. “All that, plus the Flex system enhances safety. I knew the Trimble GSC Flex was right for RP Weddell.”

After the successful demo, SITECH Nevada Product Support Sales Representative Toby Robinson and Jason installed, calibrated, and trained owner Steve Weddell and his crew on the system in less than half a day. The Cat 321 HEX is currently excavating new sewer lines at Lake Mead Drive, one of RP Weddell’s four active projects in the Las Vegas Valley. As an added benefit, Steve also elected to have his Cat 336 HEX wired for GCSFlex so the system could easily be transferred when needed.

“It’s a versatile system,” said Jason. “It helps productivity and safety, and it’s upgradeable to more advanced Trimble systems. It’s a great added value and competitively priced system for any of our customers.”
