Are you up to date on the issues pertaining to the safe operation and legislative compliance surrounding automated gates/barriers?

Our 2-hour seminar will cover:

-    Legislation relating to automated gates/barriers

-    Risk associated with automated gates/barriers

-    Solutions to mitigate the risk of injury

-    Maintenance procedures

Richard Jackson CEO and Founder of Gate Safe will be flying in from the UK to be our guest speaker.

Gate Safe was set up to raise awareness and improve the understanding of existing legislation after 2 children were killed by poorly installed / maintained gates in 2010.  Since 2012 Gate Safe has trained over 1200 automated gate/barrier installers all over the UK and attracted the support of a number of key industry / health & safety organisations.

Gate Safe has been commended by the Health & Safety Executive (HSE) for its pioneering approach, as the first organisation to put the issue of automated gate safety firmly on the public agenda.

“The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) supports the work which Gate Safe began in 2010 to improve the safety of automated and manual gates and barriers in the UK. We commend the Charity’s commitment to providing clear, practical and easy to understand information on what constitutes a safe and legally compliant gate.”

Philip White, Head of Operational Strategy, HSE
