Continuing Education Recap: American Society of Plumbing Engineers

Last year, Hixson’s Tatyana Slobodnik, CDT, CDP, a shareholder and Senior Project Engineer in Hixson’s Plumbing Systems and Fire Protection Engineering department, attended the annual American Society of Plumbing Engineers (ASPE) Technical Symposium and Product Show in Montreal, Quebec, CA. (Attendance at conferences like ASPE are part of Hixson’s commitment to Continuing Education for our associates.)  One key finding from the conference: Recent research claimed that 78% of emergency equipment (eye/face showers) do not perform in compliance with ANSI/ISEA Z358.1, the American National Standard for Emergency Eyewash and Shower Equipment.  On-line training programs (like this one) are available to help those responsible for inspecting eye/face showers on a weekly basis understand what to look for during inspections and help assure proper performance of the emergency equipment.
