The fourth edition (2017) of CSA Z7396.1 is a foundation standard and installation code for medical gas systems within health care facilities, and is substantially changed/improved from the withdrawn 2012 edition. Best practice always suggests following the latest standard, regardless of the Agency Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) adoption status. From our technical sub-committee perspective, including incident knowledge, we’ll focus on the new Clause 15 Maintenance and Ongoing Verification section. Of significance are new ‘appointed’ Qualified Operator designations. ‘Need to know’ material for all operators, and anyone touching the system that’s ever wondered or questioned whether/what they can. Learn how to become qualified. Lives depend on actions, and an understanding of daily responsibilities.
The 2017 edition sees expansion in requirements and guidance in many areas, so we’ll also update you on alarms including monitoring and testing, plus introduce new informative non-mandatory annexes for:
