The routine upkeep of equipment, and Planned Preventative Maintenance (PPM), are essential in reducing the chance of equipment failure, and in limiting potential problems and accidents. Our Service Contracts include an annual service, which when conducted regularly, will help to prolong the operational life of
By law any lifting equipment must be inspected in accordance with the LOLER regulations (Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations) . These regular inspections and maintenance must be carried out by a competent person, in order to meet these regulations. Medaco’s qualified field service engineers carry out these inspections as part of our core service. Service Contract clients will usually receive inspections every 6 months, but our services can also be accessed as a non-contracted service.
"I wish to compliment the discretion and professionalism of your engineers in the way they go about their business, particularly in such a challenging environment."
Logging the location of your equipment, its condition and its life-expectancy can help reduce risk and avoid equipment downtime.
It also supports compliance with workplace and operational legislation. In large hospitals, for example, where equipment is frequently moved around and may now be out of date, an audit can be an essential step in preventing serious incidents, and can support good operational and financial planning.
Our range of training is designed to help you prolong the life of your equipment — supporting good practice and your bottom line. If for example, a particular hoist regularly fails, our engineers will work with your in-house maintenance staff to identify a checklist of simple measures they can take to maximise its efficiency. This training brings a positive ROI as its aim is to reduce call-outs and the downtime caused by broken equipment. We see this as an essential part of maintenance staff training in care settings.
We have decades of experience working in care environments and this is reflected in our strong procedures and staff training.
Our engineers are DBS checked, highly skilled, and work in a way that is sensitive to your setting; minimising disruption and operating safe working practices. From Sales to Operations, our staff are courteous, professional and highly experienced.
