|Robert Churchyard, 52, was jailed for three and a half years on 30th October|
“Today’s sentencing serves as a stark warning to everybody involved in the automated gate sector that they must ensure all doors and gates are checked for safety against current standards and regularly maintained by properly trained specialists. As this court case clearly demonstrates, both individuals and companies could face prosecution in the event of an accident.”
He continues: “We encourage individuals and companies involved in the installation or maintenance of automated gates, to contact us should they require guidance on their legal responsibilities. In addition, dhf provides extensive safety training for both member and non-members companies, with its technical specification, DHF TS 011:2016 (the code of practice for the design, manufacture, installation and maintenance of powered gates and traffic barriers), freely available to download from the website.”
