Test Test Test – Importance of reporting!

When was the last time your anti-ligature load release products such as curtain tracks within your buildings were inspected and load tested?

If they haven’t been tested for over 12 months, then it could be a ticking time bomb!

The Department of Health’s ‘Never Events list’, the HTM66 and a 2002 Safety Notice all specifically state the importance of ensuring this is carried out as per manufacturer's guidelines.

One Capital Projects Manager from an NHS Trust said it plainly that ‘the failure to not carry out the annual load test and inspection is in effect a Never Event and we would never contemplate not doing it’.

It has become clear that quite a number of Healthcare providers are not carrying this out or taking this seriously enough and this is where Protects Plus is here to help.
