> A few weeks ago I was instructing students on flushing eyewash and safety shower and noticed the shower was scalding hot.
Another facility situation that I have is that the plumbing for the eyewashes and showers are routed through an electric room which is quite warm. The water that was sitting in the pipes in the electrical room between flushes can come out quite warm; the warmer water will pass through the system in time, but the first 3 or 4 minutes of a flush delivers uncomfortable water.
Another example of how lab architecture can create interesting safety concerns....
