Gate Safety Week takes place from the 13 – 19 October 2014 and has been devised by the Powered Gate Group division of the Door and Hardware Federation. The Powered Gate Group is an industry body made up of 80 professional companies specialising in gate installation and maintenance and every member has undergone the extensive two day training Powered Gate Safety Diploma training course that is run by the Door and Hardware Federation.
The aim of Gate Safety Week is to raise awareness of the risks of accidents surrounding powered and automated gates and how they can be prevented. The Gate Safety Week website has been set up to provide a range of resources to help the public, practitioners and professionals understand the risks and and dangers around powered gates as well as promoting safety messages in an engaging way that can be understood.
Gate Safety Week is aimed at everyone from professional installers, through to facilities managers, schools, housing associations, safety organisations and the general public. We look forward to your support in helping us raise awareness of the campaign over the next few months.
