Do you know a school that is ‘Gate Safety’ ready?
DHF is once again spearheading a Gate Safety Week campaign that will use the slogan Safe Gates Save Lives.  This will be the fourth time DHF has run such a campaign, but this year things will be a little different.
We’re targeting the safety of gates in and around schools and we’re on the lookout for a school to be the face of the campaign. So we’re running a competition for schools to be the ‘face’ of the campaign.
Do you know of a school that might fit the bill?

The Powered Gate Group represents manufacturers, suppliers, installers and maintainers of powered automatic gates, and equipment used on such gates, who demonstrate their credentials of quality, safety and adherence to high technical and safety compliance standards.

The group was formed in response to requests from the Health & Safety Executive. The government safety organisation wanted to see an industry-wide trade body that would develop higher standards of safety for automated gates. The initiative followed a number of tragic accidents involving powered gates.

Since its formation the Powered Gate Group has worked with HSE to write a Guide to Gate Safety Legislation and Standards and has developed a comprehensive training programme that will become mandatory for all members of the group. Members will then qualify to use the Powered Gate Group Safety Assured logo.


DHF has a wide range of publications available to download or view online. These include best practice guides and technical documents for products.
