Designing for the Future CSA Z8000 - Canadian Health Care Facilities - 1 Day Workshop
Proper operation and maintenance (O&M) of a health care facility is essential to the safety of patients and personnel. Health care facilities will benefit from being able to develop a tailored O&M program to fit the size, scope of practice, and particular situation. Ensuring maximum safety, efficiency and effectiveness depends on the O&M functions being executed by qualified personnel using a well-organized and documented system.
CSA Z8002 Operation and Maintenance of Health Care Facilities provides the essential requirements and establishes a framework for O&M procedures. At the core of Z8002 is the coordinated operation and maintenance program (COMP), which aims to identify health care facility elements that require O&M and to ensure each element is continuously supported and monitored. This new standard joins CSA Z8000 Canadian Health Care Facilities and the recently published CSA Z8001 Commissioning of Health Care Facilities, to comprise a comprehensive suite of standards solutions for health care facilities.
