Thanks for the support!
Gate Safety Week 2016 was a tremendous success and we’d like to thank everyone for their fantastic support, by means of messages, ramping up the social media activity and by putting information about the campaign on their websites. This year, there has been more activity and engagement than ever before. The Fencex event, held on 12 October was also a great platform for Gate Safety Week and its objectives, with DHF’s expert trainer, Nick Perkins, holding a presentation with Q&A session on gate safety issues, shining a light on the vital need for correctly installed and maintained powered gates.
A big year for DHF:
This year has been a very proactive one for DHF with regards to gate safety. Working in conjunction with NSI, we have created the pioneering Code of Practice (DHF TS 011: 2016: Code of Practice for the Design, Manufacture, Installation and Maintenance of Powered Gates and Traffic Barriers), which is the first comprehensive guide for the powered gate industry, aimed at raising standards and reducing risk.
In addition, we have also made the finals of the National Security Awards, placed in the Contribution to Standards in the Security Sector category.
With the 2016 campaign now finished, we’re not letting the grass grow under our feet, and the 2017 Gate Safety Week initiative is now firmly underway. We are busy finalising a robust strategy for this year’s campaign. Further details to follow shortly!
We need support for the 2017 campaign:
The support we have received for the 2016 Gate Safety Week campaign has been fabulous, so keep it coming! The 2017 starts now and we’d like to add your message of support to our website and social media platforms. Just email your messages of support to email@example.com and we’ll get them up on the Gate Safety Week website. For further information about Gate Safety Week visit www.gatesafetyweek.org.uk
