Remote Authorised Person (MGPS) Services
Our Authorised Person Service is designed to empower you to be able to manage your own site and be as self sufficient as possible keeping your overheads down. It is aimed at smaller non-acute sites, community hospitals and hospices. Short term cover for larger sites is available for holiday cover or during periods of training up new engineers into the role of AP.
We will take on remote AP responsibilities for your hospital/Hospice. We will hold duplicate site documentation relating to the Medical Gas pipeline System. We will train up some of your staff to act as deputised AP (MGPS) able to manage and issue “Low Hazard” permits to your medical gas maintenance contractors. We will be available to contact regarding specific system issues via telephone or e-mail during normal office hours. Enquiries will be answered in an agreed and timely manner.
Additional planned site attendance for project supervision and high hazard works will be available as and when required.
Items covered in AP services are:
Initial Site Audit
A site visit at the start of the contract to provide a health-check of your existing system, systems of work and report any remedial actions.
Responsible Person training
Up to four members of your staff, will be trained as Responsible Persons for the Hospital/Hospice. The training will be face to face on site for one day. This training will enable the Responsible Person to implement, use and monitor the Permit to Work System, oversee the routine operation and maintenance of the Medical Gas Systems including minor repair works to the system.
A one-day annual site audit to review and report remedial actions, to cover a sample of wards and other areas, procedures and policies for medical gases.
Note: out of hours call out is not included.
