Door and Hardware Federation (DHF) to launch new safety seminar at FIT

Door and Hardware Federation (DHF) has announced that it will be launching a new safety seminar this year at the 2020 FIT Show at the NEC in May.  

The free seminar is specifically aimed at those with responsibility for automated gates and industrial doors and will take the form of a two-hour session. 

In addition, the pro-active federation has produced a free ‘owners guide’ entitled: Guidance for owners and managers of Industrial Doors, Garage Doors, Powered Gates and Traffic Barriers, which is based on DHF TS 011 and DHF TS 012, that attendees can take away with them following the talk.  The seminar will be open to both DHF members and non-members.

“DHF will be exhibiting as part of FIT’s education and training programme, and through our new seminar, we are hoping to inform and educate a wider audience on how to keep their products safe and compliant,” explains DHF’s Commercial Manager, Patricia Sowsbery-Stevens.  
“Both the seminar and owners guide will highlight the dangers of not taking maintenance seriously.  As we know, in the past, owners have been prosecuted because they have not maintained their product in a legal and appropriate manner.  With the seminar free and open to all, we are once again placing education at the heart of our activity.”

This year’s FIT show takes place from 12-14 May and continues to be the UK’s only dedicated event for the window, door, hardware, flat glass, and components market.  It attracts annual audiences of approximately 10,000, from fabricators and installers through to architects and specifiers, all of whom come to explore the latest equipment and software solutions and enjoy networking opportunities.

“FIT is a natural platform to attract local authorities to come along to the seminar and see what their responsibilities are with regards to their product,” concludes Patricia.  “We look forward to welcoming attendees to our seminar, and our stand.”
