Businesses are compelled under Legislation to provide patrons and staff a safe environment and face severe penalties and/or criminal prosecution when these safety standards are not complied with and an injury occurs.
Due to the nature of the industry, Medical Facilities in particular, have higher safety standard requirements relating to electrical protection to minimise the possibility of electrocution.
Medical facilities as described below must be electrically wired as either a Cardiac or Body Protected Area, complying with Australian Standards AS/NZS 3003:2011 to meet Patient and Staff safety standards. As part of meeting your requirements under these Standards, these facilities are required to be inspected and tested regularly every 6 to 12 months, to ensure safety standards are being maintained and that protection devices are operating accordingly.
BMS Electrical Services specialises in the Inspection, Testing and Certification of Cardiac/Body Protected Areas according to specifications as set by AS/NZS 3000:2007 and AS/NZS 3003:2011. As part of our service we will provide you with all the documentation required to meet your obligations and should your facility not comply, we will advise you of the corrective measures required to meet compliance.
Contact us for a free no obligation quote to inspect, test and certify your facility. As a holistic package, we also offer Safety Switch and Appliance testing as to Work, Health and Safety Regulations 2012 and AS/NZS 3760:2010 In-service safety inspection and testing of electrical equipment requirements.
Set and forget - take the headache out of managing these compliance tests and speak to us about setting up an ongoing program to facilitate all your electrical safety compliance requirements.
