Health & Safety is very important to keep people safe and so that people don’t get hurt. LCD Monitors can be dangerous if the correct health & safety regulations aren’t followed and adhered too.
This can be anything from making sure that the monitor has been safety checked and is CE marked or if the monitor needs to go into a medial environment that it is EN60601 compliant and medically approved.
There are a lot of different regulations depending on the location of the monitor and what it is being used for.
EN 60601 Medically Approved Monitor
As you can see from the image the monitor is EN 60601 approved and can be used in the medical sector. This monitor in particular is being used to look at X-Ray’s and other PACS images.
To the left is an example of one our ‘Pro Medical 15’ monitors that is being used in a hospital to display PACS images such as X-Ray’s and pictures of scans that have been taken.
To display PACS images the surgeons or doctors use high resolution monitors that are EN 60601 approved to view the images of scans and other information.
