Profile Bed Servicing
Profile bed servicing is vital for safety and function of the profiling bed in use. Anyone in the care industry should be aware that hi-lo profiling beds are viewed as lifting equipment, though that is not their primary functino so they do not require LOLER.
This leads us to a place that could be seen as a grey area.
Modern profiling beds, should have safety features built in that offer a sense of safety and security. They are still, though, machines designed to change the position of an object and as such are not passive items like a divan bed used at home. They need regular and competent servicing and testing.
According to the HSE
they fall into a legal requirement for safety and service the minute you have a paid home care worker attending the home.
So, give us a call – if you have one, or one thousand we can service them and certify them safe (if they are safe!!) and help you if they aren’t safe.
