Four hundred powered gate installers and specialists have now successfully completed the Door & Hardware Federation (DHF) powered gate safety diploma training course.
The DHF Powered Gate Group represents the leading manufacturers, suppliers, installers and maintainers of powered automatic gates and gate automation equipment. It says the success of its training scheme demonstrates the industry’s commitment to driving up levels of powered gate safety in the UK.
The two-day training course is aimed at all those involved in the safety of automatically controlled powered gates including installers, inspectors and those responsible for gate maintenance.
The scheme ensures that DHF Powered Gate Group member companies' personnel are trained to provide and install fully compliant gates in all environments. It is recognised as one of the most comprehensive powered gate training schemes in Europe.
During each course, delegates complete a number of training modules - covering all aspects of gate safety from initial risk assessment through to force testing - in order to obtain their coveted DHF gate safety diplomas. Topics covered include law and regulations, use of standards, risk assessment, testing and inspection, documentation, repair and maintenance.
It is compulsory for all DHF Powered Gate Group members to put their personnel through the training scheme. It allows member companies to use the DHF Safety Assured mark which is their customer assurance that specifiers and purchasers have made a responsible and safe choice when choosing and maintaining powered gates.
The diploma course is led by Nick Perkins, DHF training officer. He said:
“Raising standards of automated gate safety in the industry continues to be the driving force of the federation. Thorough and comprehensive training for all those responsible for powered gate safety is a key element in our drive to raise standards.”The DHF gate safety diploma training scheme is open to all members and also to non member individuals who are responsible for installation, assessment and inspection of powered gates. The next training courses will be held on November 4th and 5th in Scunthorpe.
