On the third Wednesday of July, the Piping Industry Progress & Education Fund (PIPE) and our local Phoenix ASPE chapter members met for our monthly meeting to discuss all things under the sun medical gas-related.
When involved in a collaborative, international health care project, it is best to set aside what you know and open your mind to how other parts of the world treat their drinking water. Take what you have learned and evaluate it to see if the processes can be applied elsewhere.
You should ask your code officials, medical gas inspectors, verifiers and other colleagues to compare interpretations of the code that you intend to apply (collaborate). You may end up learning something new or seeing it from another perspective.
