Body protection means basically that every Power Point needs to be protected by 10 milli amp. R.C.D’S or a Safety Switch which is the same as in most Houses but more sensitive to Earth Leakage Currents. This includes Dental Chairs and X-Ray Machines.
Another requirement of the Standard is that if there is to be any Electrical Work done in the Patient Area ie: extra Power Points. This Work is not to be done unless the Area is upgraded to Body Protection which is not commonly known by Electricians.
After the Patient Area is Upgraded it needs to be inspected by a Bio Medical Inspector and a Certificate of Electrical Safety supplied. This Work is Prescribed Work.
Some of our Clients that we are upgrading are Peninsula Health (Frankston Hospital, Rosebud Hospital and several Nursing Homes and Rehabilitation Centres), Peninsula Community Health Services and some Private Clients.
