Abstract: Like Spider-Man, the Commissioning Authority tries to stop disaster before it happens. But their importance is often not understood or appreciated until too late, especially concerning commissioning Emergency Power Systems. Healthcare facilities may be able to deal with a temporary loss of utility power, but not a failure of the emergency power systems. This session explains why and how our superhero Cx Agent leads the Cx Team to ensure emergency power systems are fully reliable to protect the health and safety of patients, staff and visitors.
