The medical gases that BOC Healthcare supplies have undergone rigorous safety and quality checks at each stage in their manufacture to ensure their safety for patient administration. See pharmaceutical quality.
Medical Gases are supplied as a drug, controlled by their Marketing Authorisations and their production is controlled under a Manufacturing Licence. The Medicines Control Agency (MCA) audits and controls these.
Under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974, it is the responsibility of all employers to train their employees on the recommended safeguards relating to products and equipment used at work. To help its customers to achieve this BOC Healthcare provides a range of information on medical gases and their use within our Safety and Technical section.
