Webinar 4  Wednesday April 15, 2020
Topic:  Commissioning in a Health Care Facility
Speaker:  Wayne Stokes, CET Arch, FMA, RPA
  Commissioning is the process of planning, documenting, scheduling, testing, adjusting, verifying, and training, to provide a facility that operates as a fully functional system per the Owner's Project Requirements.

Construction specifications typically would specify the Commissioning standards / procedures that are required to be followed. Unfortunately up until recently Commissioning for a Health Care Facility was no different than it was for an office building, an apartment building or a commercial establishment. This webinar will explain how the commissioning process in general works for most facilities and what the expectations of the Health Care Facility should be. The webinar will also show the differences between the Commission standard CSA Z320-11 (R2016) and the new CSA Z8001-13 Standard for Commissioning of Health Care Facilities. The webinar will focus in on the pitfalls of not doing commissioning or not paying attention to the commissioning process and as well as the benefits of doing commissioning correctly.
