Safety in School Car Parks
A key safety element in any school car park is the restriction of unauthorised access. A cantilever sliding gate is a simple yet effective means of achieving this. For further details please contact us.
Health & Safety
The legal position is that powered gate systems are
considered to be “machinery”. This means that, by law,
every new powered gate, when it is put into service, must comply with the European Machinery Directive
(2006/42/EC), especially the Directive’s Essential Health and Safety Requirements, be CE marked and accompanied by a Declaration of Conformity. The Health and Safety Executive has lead responsibility for enforcement of this legislation, which has been transposed into UK law as the Supply of Machinery (Safety) Regulations 2008. The responsibility for complying with the law rests with the responsible person which will be either the manufacturer, supplier or installer, depending on the circumstances.
The key to compliance with the law is risk assessment,
which includes identifying the hazards, estimating the
severity and likelihood of each hazard, followed by an
evaluation to determine whether each hazard is
adequately controlled and, if it is not, what further action needs to be taken to control the risk; the principal aim is to secure compliance with the Machinery Directive’s Essential Health and Safety Requirements. extract
