Presented by Jeremy Dann

If you are not currently looking after ceiling and floor lifts in your CE department you may rethink your approach after this presentation. Included in this article is a video recording of the presentation.

Orginal Webinar sponsored by Health Association Nova Scotia & ACCES, November 9, 2011

There is a growing body of evidence that indicates ceiling lifts are high risk devices that require careful attention to detail in the development and delivery of a comprehensive preventative maintenance and periodic inspection program. Health Association Nova Scotia's Clinical Engineering staff members will take you through the development of their testing program and professionally engineered lift load. The Association's CE service is now testing more than 2000 lifting devices annually. Real world experience and evidence will be presented surrounding the importance of routine testing and incoming inspections.

This presentation will focus in the following areas:

  • Lift testing - why should I care?
  • Standards and regulations
  • Lift loads and test equipment
  • Inspection results
  • How are tracks installed?
  • Why do we need better labels?
  • Why do tracks fail inspections?
  • Why do tracks and motors fall from the ceiling?
