Authorising engineer ventilation service

What is an Authorising Engineer (AE) Ventilation?

An Authorising Engineer is an experienced individual that takes on the responsibility for the management of health and safety guidelines as recommended by the Department of Health. The role combines skills found in engineering, building services and microbiology.

Our AE ventilation services

Too frequently, architects and designers incorrectly interpret the HTM’s (Health Technical Memoranda) and HBN’s (Health Building Note) resulting in errors in construction design and in the installation of critical ventilation systems in areas such as operating theatres. Once built, it becomes difficult and expensive to alter the layout to make it compliant.

At IOM we review designs while they are still at the planning stage and assist in making alterations to layout and ventilation requirements, before the build or refurbishment takes place. This is a relatively simple process and saves an enormous amount of time and trouble as a project progresses.

Our service therefore provides an independent consultative approach to ensure the integrity of the ventilation system is reflected in the design, positioning, and maintenance programmes.

An Authorising Engineer (AE) Ventilation would be expected to carry out the following tasks:

 

  • Appointment/selection of Authorising Person (AP)
  • Reviewing validation/verification documentation and methods
  • Audit of ventilation systems
  • Assisting hospital in prioritising programme of improvements and development of a five-year plan
  • Review of training requirements for Authorising Persons and Competent Persons
  • Provide training
  • Review and approve ventilation project designs

Our services are available to a wide rage of healthcare facilities and organisations in both the public and private sector. Our in-house Chartered Engineers can provide knowledge, training, auditing and monitoring to ensure the required procedures and standards are being met.

How our experts can help:

  • Take on the responsibility for the management of health and safety guidelines as recommended by the Department of Health.
  • Support the design, validation and verification of ventilation systems within hospital and associated healthcare environments.
  • Provide an independent consultative approach to ensure the integrity of the ventilation system is reflected in the design, positioning, and maintenance programmes.
