Body Protected Areas
A Body Protected Area is an area within a medical facility where patients are treated, diagnosed or monitored using medical electrical appliances. There are a number of requirements for such areas including that electrical outlets are protected by a 10mA RCD. Call us to discuss your needs.
Cardiac designated areas require special attention and knowledge of the Earthing system.
Equipotential earthing is installed in rooms classified as ‘Cardiac Protected’ to minimise any voltage differences between earthed parts of equipment and any other exposed metal in the room to prevent patient micro-electrocution.
Medical / Dental Testing
Body Protected / Cardiac Areas should be annually tested to ensure area and patient safety.
PLEASE NOTE – We do NOT test Medical Appliances.
