Webinar Wednesday continues to be a popular destination for Biomeds. More than 500 people registered to attend the Feb. 11 webinar “Electrical Safety Essentials: How to Stay Ahead of the Curve” presented by Jerry Zion from Fluke Biomedical.
Zion has more than 35 years of experience working in many capacities for various medical device manufacturers and has spent the last decade at Fluke Biomedical pioneering the global training program. He is an AAMI certified biomedical equipment technician and holds a bachelor’s of science in electrical engineering technology from Purdue University. He also obtained a master’s in management in science and technology from the Oregon Graduate Institute.
In the webinar, Zion discussed the essentials of electrical safety, including: global standards – requirements and limits; test procedure – safety tests and conditions; and test sequence – physical inspection and beyond.
The presentation was followed by a flood of great questions during a Q&A session. Many of the questions had to be answered via email or on Fluke Biomedical’s official Twitter feed with #ELSAFessentials.
Attendees praised the session and the amount of high-quality information relayed during the second webinar of 2015. The successful Webinar Wednesday series continues to provide great information to hundreds of biomeds.
“(It was a) very good webinar, a lot of great information, especially for the new guys,” Albert H. wrote in a post-webinar survey.
“This is a great resource and I appreciate TechNation and the various vendors for providing this information and making it readily available for the biomedical community,” Ken M. wrote.
“Wonderful webinar. I am going to use Fluke’s white pages. I also need to make sure we are performing safety tests properly,” Mike B. wrote after attending the session.
“Jerry Zion did an excellent job helping me understand the options available in electrical safety analyzers,” Ethan H. wrote.
“The webinar was timely and appreciated as this subject is sometimes not given the highlight it deserves,” Edward S. wrote.
One attendee was excited after the webinar because it started a conversation in the biomed shop that led to further learning among the entire team.
“It is always great to go back and review information that is so critical in our line of work. It also opened up new discussion topics about electrical safety in our department. Thank you so much,” Maria M. said.
“I continue to applaud TechNation, all of its staff on their efforts and to the presenters who volunteer their time to present this webinar series of present and future technologies and vital information. The ability to continue to be educated will only strengthen the HTM field as we move forward in such a critical and complex field,” Albert R. wrote.
