Preventive Maintenance is not only designed to pro-actively maintain equipment and ensure it is up and running for the maximum amount of time, it is also designed to ensure the safety of both patients and staff using this equipment, through a range of standardized checks and tests depending on the type of equipment:

  • Calibration to control the dose of radiation
  • Electrical and mechanical safety checks to prevent potential hazards
  • Investing in PM tool-kits and in their regular upgrades
  • Checking emergency circuits and warning indicators
  • Patient Table Checks to prevent malfunction during diagnosis or operations
  • Frequent safety Field Modification Instructions (FMI’s) to correct any safety issues that are identified on the system
  • Making sure equipment settings are as per the manufacturer’s specifications
