New Gate Safety Organisation

GATE SAFE has been set up following the death of two children and other potentially fatal incidents during last year.
Its goal is to bring together a broad cross-section of manufacturers, installers and those organisations responsible for safety in order to look at how the current safety measures can be improved to try and eliminate as far as possible any future accidents.
A well attended summit meeting unanimously agreed that urgent action was needed to stop any further injuries or fatalities caused by automated gates. Actions to be implemented included putting pressure where necessary to bring gate safety to the top of the political agenda, and to set up a working party to look at ways of achieveing safety regulation compliance for all installations.
