3 Things You Need to Look for in a Medical Electrician

When you run a medical facility, the last thing you have time for is searching for an electrician in Sydney who knows the ins and outs of working within the medical field. While electricians are aplenty, finding a medical electrician in Sydney with the right hygiene and safety procedures in place, and the ability to adapt to your needs can be a little difficult.

If you have never had the need for an electrician in your medical facility before, or you are after a new electrician, what do you need to be looking out for? Why should you hire one electrical team over another? Here’s a few points that might help make the hard decision easier.

Hygiene and Safety Procedures

An electrician with experience working in medical facilities will have hygiene and safety procedures in place for their staff. The company should have procedures in place that mimic most medical facilities – washing hands regularly with sanitiser when soap and water is not available, wearing protective clothing where required, covering equipment where required and not sending staff who are unwell into a medical centre to work. Staff should also limit touching any medical equipment that they do not need to.

The Sydney electrical company you choose should also have strict reporting practises in place, where every job they do is detailed and the information can be recalled as and when needed.

Experience in Installation and Testing

All electricians are experienced in installing and testing the basic electrical equipment, however when working in a medical facility, you need an electrician who is experience in general power, three-phase power, test and tag, smart lighting, security, cabling, tv points and more. Choosing an experienced medical electrician means you have a company working beside you who have the knowledge of what medical centres require when it comes to their power usage.

Minimal Down Time

When you run a business, you need an electrician that provides minimal downtime. Medical facilities are busy places and can’t afford to have rooms or the whole centre closed just for electrical work to take place. When it comes time to choose a medical electrician in Sydney for your workplace, speak to them to find out their procedures on how they minimise disruption to your business. Perhaps they can do their work early in the morning or late in the afternoon. If the work you need done will take a few hours, perhaps they can work overnight? An electrical company who can get the work done efficiently, while following all standard safety procedures.

Darren Dewerson - licensed electrician in Sydney

I started in the industry installing security alarms and CCTV camera systems 25 years ago in London. I worked on thousands of sites servicing alarm electrical systems for large building companies, schools & other locations.

When I arrived in Australia I wasn’t allowed to apply for a security licence as I was not a citizen at the time so I decided get my TAFE qualifications and retrain as an electrician which complimented my electrical assistant work in London. I have been working as an electrician in Sydney since 2005.

For just over 40 years I have been involved in all types of electrical installations, upgrades, emergency repairs and set ups.
