Hereford County Hospital Electrical Testing
Hereford County Hospital provides an indispensable service to patients from all over Hereford, but to carry on serving the community, the hospital needs to know that their electrical systems remain in perfect working order.
Keeping a hospital running isn’t something that can be done with a one-time site visit. Goodridge Electrical Contractors Ltd’s ongoing support and expertise is just part of a five year electrical testing plan.
A hospital requires a huge number of distribution boards, and Hereford County Hospital is no different. With over 250 boards spread across wards, offices, laboratories and plant rooms, each of which requires thorough testing to a five year schedule.
Goodridge Electrical Contractors Ltd has approached this as a rolling job, spreading out the testing over a three year period to minimise disruption to the hospital’s day-to-day working.
Drawing upon years of experience of working in live hospital environments, Goodridge Electrical Contractors Ltd liaise with staff to ensure that all health and safety, waste management, dust control and security procedures are adhered to.
We also further minimise disruption by working outside of standard working hours, allowing hospital staff to carry out their daily tasks without running into a distribution board which is currently being tested.
Along with a standard electrical test [link to Electrical Testing page], our experts carry out full thermal imaging on all distribution boards. This has allowed us to discover and solve problems which could otherwise have been missed.
Hospital maintenance management has commented that our keen eye for problems and our quick, reliable notification procedures have ensured that Hereford County Hospital and its staff and patients have been kept safe and well served throughout the period of the project.
They also look forward to us providing our services for years to come.
