BOC Healthcare can assist you in identifying the risks associated with medical gas management. Having provided you with a documented risk assessment, the risks can be prioritised and incorporated in your risk register. This enables you to manage and mitigate them effectively.
BOC Healthcare is able to provide an impartial and pragmatic view of risk in your systems, using our experience with supplying medical gases to hospitals throughout Ireland since the 1930s.
We apply tried and tested risk analysis methodology to ensure we provide the hospital with a solid foundation upon which to build.
