An Authorised Person - Medical Gas Pipeline System (MGPS) is required by HTM 02-01 to provide functional and technical management of the medical gas systems where the gases are carried and distributed within a pipeline system.
The provision of an AP (MGPS) therefore needs to be by someone fully experienced and qualified to undertake duties that are required.
Depending on your requirements BOC Healthcare can provide you with Authorised Person support in the following ways:
Operational AP (MGPS)
Where you need assistance on site, or where your site isn’t large enough to warrant a qualified engineer of your own, we can provide an AP (MGPS) on your behalf. Some of the duties would include:
Managing interruptions to service requiring high hazard level permits to work
Advising local staff on all aspects of medical gas management
Training your staff to act as Responsible Persons in order to deal with contractors and low hazard permits to work.
Attending medical gas committee meetings
Selection and management of medical gas contractors working on your site
Construction AP (MGPS)
Even where you have the operational staff required to manage your existing systems, you may not have the experience necessary to adequately manage a large MGPS installation project. Here we can provide technical assistance to enable you to ensure that the installation contractors working on your project are carrying out the work competently and that the completed works are tested and commissioned to the required design parameters. This can be divided into the following elements:
Design Validation, to ensure that the systems have been designed to cater for your demands
Contractor Evaluation, to ensure that the specialist installers have the correct training and qualifications to complete the work safely
Installation Testing, to ensure that all functional and safety tests are carried out at the correct times and to the correct standards
Commissioning, after all the works have been completed the systems needs to be commissioned to ensure the design parameters have been adhered to. This also ensures that the system performs to design and it is safe for patient connection.
