Electrician that uses thermal imaging in Sydney

One of the methods that we use to thoroughly inspect any type of electrical equipment or switchboard is with the use of thermal imaging. Using this technology can detect potentially dangerous faults before they develop and cause an issue to the site. Our thermal imaging equipment can be safely used in medical facilities with the survey of an electrical installation revealing in seconds any abnormal component temperatures that typically precede equipment failure.

Our thermography report identifies the exact area of the fault so no time is wasted using other elimination techniques. This can save time & money as part of a regular preventative maintenance program to ensure equipment or rooms are always available for use.

The benefits of using this technology include;

  • Identify potential equipment/component failure or irregularities in loading
  • Prevent fire/explosion
  • Check component integrity
  • Determine the loading condition of the equipment
  • Managing corporate governance, risk and compliance
  • Maximising performance, profitability and competitiveness via room/equipment usage rates remaining high.

Electrician for medical facility test and tagging in Sydney

Our electrician in Sydney can conduct annual testing and tagging of electrical appliances used in medical facilities to ensure they meet the electrical rules according to AS/NZ 3760:2022. Equipment needs to be subject to regular inspection and testing to detect damage, wear and tear or other conditions that might render it unsafe for use by staff, patients or visitors.

We do not generally test and tag all items in the business (as other companies do), we will discuss with the medical site what equipment needs to be tested to meet Australian standards or local rules and regulations. We use specialised testing equipment to test each item and after each job, we will send a written report of all tested items for your records. If any failed items are found we will either remove them from service (after reporting to the relevant person) or repair if this is able to be done in a cost-effective manner.

When an electrician is performing tests and tagging of equipment, they are conducting a safety inspection to ensure that the electrical appliances and equipment are safe to use. This process involves a series of visual inspections, electrical tests, and tagging of equipment to indicate its safety status. The electrician will first visually inspect the equipment for any visible signs of damage or wear and tear that could potentially compromise the safety of the device. They will also ensure that the device is correctly wired, grounded, and has a suitable power source.

After the visual inspection, the electrician will use specialized testing equipment to check for electrical faults, such as insulation resistance, earth continuity, and polarity. These tests ensure that the equipment is safe to use and can protect against electrocution or electrical shock.

Once the tests are complete, the electrician will then apply a tag to the equipment to indicate its safety status. This tag will display information such as the date of the inspection, the name of the electrician who conducted the test, and the due date for the next inspection.

Licensed electrician for body protected area testing

Get a licensed electrician in Sydney to do body protected area testing to ensure your electrical systems are safe and up to Australian Standards AS/NZ 3003:2018. An experienced and certified electrician will deliver a high quality testing service to help you maintain a comprehensive safety regime for the electrical systems in body protected areas. 

We will conduct a test to identify any potential hazards and work closely with you to address them quickly and efficiently if needed. Our commitment to safety testing in Sydney is second to none, and we take great pride in providing peace of mind to our clients.

Annual body protected area testing as per AS/NZ3003:2018 Clause number 2.2.4 is required for the following patient areas; 

(a) Accident and emergency wards.

(b) Allied health care providers, e.g. chiropractic, physiotherapy, optometry and naturopathic.

(c) Anaesthetic bays.

(d) Audiometry rooms.

(e) Blood collection areas.

(f) Day procedure theatres.

(g) Delivery suites.

(h) Dental surgeries.

(i) Dermatology rooms.

(j) Doctors consulting rooms.

(k) Endoscopy theatres and procedure rooms.

(l) General medical and surgical wards.

(m) High dependency wards.

(n) Imaging rooms.

(o) Nurseries.

(p) Operating theatres intended for non-cardiac surgery.

(q) Patient examination rooms for outpatients.

(r) Plasmapherisis areas.

(s) Plaster rooms.

(t) Recovery areas or wards associated with operating theatres and imaging rooms.

(u) Respiratory function laboratories.

(v) Resuscitation bays.

(w) Stress test rooms.

(x) Treatment rooms.

(y) Ultrasound rooms.

 

Our electrician can visit your site (or multiple locations) to carry out the testing and provide the necessary paperwork once it is complete. A body protected patient area includes all full height walls and doors bounding an area where patients are stationed. That means dividers such as bed curtains, desks, or partial walls do not separate a body protected area from a common area: the body protected area encompasses the entire room.

Cardiac protected area testing

Our electrician can also do cardiac protected area testing. Certain types of medical equipment cannot be used within these areas because they are cardiac applied. A cardiac protected patient area is similar to a body protected area meaning it is a whole room, but these areas will have stricter controls to allow for cardiac applied equipment to be used. 

Cardiac applied equipment directly involves contact with the heart and is associated with a significantly higher risk of electrical complications (i.e., microshock electrocution). Therefore this type of equipment must be checked and tested by an electrician in Sydney annually.

We will check electrical general-purpose outlets (GPOs), residual-current devices (RCDs), miniature circuit breakers (MCBs), and all components related to the safe supply of electrical power. It includes rules for where these fixtures must be installed, labelling of the circuits, and methods to test and inspect these protected areas to assure their continued safety.

Once completed we will then certify the room. Failure to certify body protected or cardiac protected electrical areas can be a high level of risk for your patients. Electrocution is not the only type of failure that conforming to this standard helps you avoid, other things like an electrical shock, burns, equipment damage, and even electrical fire could result from failure to properly install and certify electrical systems in patient treatment areas.

Our experienced and certified electricians have the expertise and technical knowledge required to deliver exceptional lighting solutions that meet the specific needs and requirements of these specialised spaces.

  • Overhead Surgical Lighting: This is the primary source of lighting in an operating theatre or procedure room. It provides a large, bright, and shadow-free lighting source to ensure that surgeons and medical staff have sufficient illumination to perform procedures accurately.
 
  • Examination Lighting: These lights are positioned on examination lamps and are used to provide localised illumination for specific areas of the patient’s body.
 
  • Wall-mounted Lighting: Wall-mounted lighting fixtures are used to provide additional lighting to the operating theatre or procedure room. They are typically installed on walls or ceilings and are adjustable to provide optimal lighting for various procedures.
 
  • Backlighting: Backlighting is used to provide illumination behind the medical equipment, allowing surgeons and medical staff to see through the equipment and maintain a clear view of the operating area.
 
  • Task Lighting: Task lighting is used to provide additional illumination for specific tasks, such as reading medical charts or working with small medical devices.
 
  • Emergency Lighting: In the event of a power outage or other emergency, emergency lighting will provide backup illumination to ensure that medical staff can continue to perform procedures safely.

Frequently asked questions

Yes, Darren from Safe N Sound Electrical can do an M Class electrical inspection for a medical facility location in Sydney.

Dedicated circuits are needed for medical equipment for several reasons & you need a licensed medical electrician with experience to ensure it is installed and set up correctly:

  1. Electrical safety: Medical equipment is often designed to operate on a specific voltage and current, and may require a high level of electrical precision. A dedicated circuit ensures that the equipment is not sharing power with other electrical devices that may cause electrical interference or voltage fluctuations, which can lead to equipment malfunction or damage.

  2. Power requirements: Some medical equipment may have high power demands, which can overload a circuit that is also supplying power to other devices. Dedicated circuits ensure that the equipment has the necessary power supply to function safely and efficiently.

  3. Regulatory requirements: Medical equipment is subject to specific safety regulations and standards to ensure patient safety. Dedicated circuits can help meet these requirements and ensure that the equipment is operating within safe parameters.

  4. Reliability: Medical equipment is critical to patient care and often operates continuously, so it needs to be reliable. A dedicated circuit ensures that the equipment is not affected by power outages or other electrical issues that may occur with other devices on the same circuit.

An isolation switch, also known as an isolation transformer or a medical-grade isolation transformer, is an electrical device that is used in medical facilities to provide electrical isolation and protect sensitive medical equipment from electrical interference and voltage fluctuations.

Here are some ways in which an isolation switch is used in medical facilities:

  1. Electrical isolation: An isolation switch is used to provide electrical isolation between the power source and the medical equipment. This ensures that the electrical noise or interference generated by the power source does not affect the performance of the medical equipment.

  2. Grounding: An isolation switch can provide a separate ground connection for medical equipment, which reduces the risk of electrical shock and ensures that any electrical leakage from the equipment is safely directed to the ground.

  3. Protection: An isolation switch can protect medical equipment from power surges, voltage spikes, and other electrical disturbances that may occur in the power supply.

  4. Compliance: Many medical equipment manufacturers require the use of isolation switches to comply with safety standards and regulations, such as those set by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) and the National Electrical Code (NEC).
