UK’s leading safety charities lend support to Gate Safety Week
A campaign that aims to dramatically improve the safety of automated gates in the UK has received a significant boost with the UK’s leading safety charities, the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) and British Safety Council, coming on board.
The campaign organised by the Door & Hardware Federation (DHF) Powered Gate Group claims that there are more than 500,000 automated gates in service in the UK, yet the industry says just 30 per cent of these are safe to use. In recent years, three children and three adults have been killed in powered gate accidents.
RoSPA has been at the heart of accident prevention in the UK and around the world for almost 100 years. RoSPA’s Michael Corley said: “The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents fully supports this year’s Gate Safety Week campaign and wishes the DHF every success in raising public awareness of the dangers associated with poorly fitted and maintained powered gates.”
