1 Medical Locations offers a final testing service of new electrical installations. Independent validation of new group 1 and group 2 medical locations is crucial to establish if the earth system is adequate among other issues. The required final tests are not now so rigorous as with MEIGaN.
The tests undertaken will check for compliance with BS7671 and HTM 06-01. I also discuss the electrical design with the designers to help spot any issues in advance. Any faults found will be rectified where possible. A full report is issued accordingly.
2 Medical Locations offers advice where two parties have contractual disagreements with the electrical installation of medical radiological equipment.
Examples include an x-ray room failing on the measurements of the earth system and the installer disputes the earthing is adequate. For example, they may have installed an earth wire that is too thin. It may be that the measurements are incorrect.
Radiology departments may encounter difficulties with their own turnkey equipment service providers.
Please feel free to contact Medical Locations for help and support.
Here is a document that I have drafted on the testing and commissioning of medical electrical installations.
Print the pocket guide using Adobe reader and select booklet in the print menu. The passwords are the same for both.
To unlock it, may I humbly ask that you make a small donation (£2) to the Asthma UK charity on my just giving page? You can edit the amount manually.
They will then thank you by email along with the password. Please respect this fund-raising when sharing with colleagues other than in your healthcare establishment.
