As part of our on- going training and commitment to health and safety we attended the Powered Gate Safety Diploma run by the DHF (Door and Hardware Federation) . The course consisted of three modules : repair and maintenance ,risk assessment , testing and inspection and a final exam which had to be completed and passed . The DHF Gate Safety Diploma ensures that the customer has chosen a company that can deliver a safe product installed by a fully trained engineer.
Current Health and safety legislation and the Machinery Directive puts the onus firmly on the Occupier/Employer to maintain their automatic gate to the agreed standards and to have regular service and maintenance completed and records kept of same . To ensure your automatic gate is operating correctly and compliant with the current health safety standards please feel free to call us regarding service and maintenance of your gate.
The Standards are EN 13241-1 and EN 12453.
