According to AS 3003:2011, a body protected electrical space is a patient care location that needs to undergo yearly routine inspection and testing.
Body Protected Area Testing is a critical part of working with electrical devices. It is a test to determine the level of protection provided by clothing and other materials against electric shock. This test is important because it can help to prevent serious injuries or even death in the event of an electrical accident.
There are two types of body protected area tests: ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) and personal protective equipment (PPE). GFCI tests are conducted on devices that are designed to protect against electrical shock by interrupting the circuit when there is a ground fault. PPE tests are conducted on clothing and other materials that are intended to protect the wearer from electrical shock.
BPA testing from ETS is carried out by our qualified electrical engineers who are experienced in carrying out the test. The test is conducted by measuring the level of electrical current that is present in the area to be tested. The level of current is measured in milliamperes (mA).
The test is used to determine the level of protection that is required for a person to be able to safely work on or near electrical equipment. The test is used to determine the level of protection that is required for a person to be able to safely work on or near electrical equipment.
