GT: Proud to be Gate Safe Premier InstallersPublished Tuesday 25th August, 2020
Earlier this year GT Perimeter Protection staff attended a rigorous training course to officially become Gate Safe accredited. We are proud to announce that GT Perimeter Protection is now a Gate Safe Premier Installer.
Gate Safe is a Health and Safety Executive (HSE) commended charity organisation which aims to stop accidents or fatalities occurring as a result of an unsafe electric gate or barrier installation. They also work hard to promote a better understanding of the legislation and standards around automated gates and barriers. Their comprehensive, IOSH approved specialist training sessions are designed to educate a range of professionals in the safety standards of automated/manual gates and barriers.
Over the course of the training we reinforced our knowledge about the scope of legislation and standards related to gate safety, the possible implications of failing to install equipment to the correct standards, and the details, styles and configurations of different gates and their associated risks. Other highlights included understanding Risk Assessment protocol, guidance on correct installation, and the importance of maintenance.
The training was developed alongside The Institution of Occupational Safety, and now we have successfully completed it we can be found on the Gate Safe register. We also have access to a wide range of resources, technical training manuals, and regular training updates. This means we have the latest gate safety information at our fingertips to help you make an informed decision to help protect your staff, customers, and clients from any potential accidents, and to protect our customers from possible costly litigation or reputational damage.
Being a Gate Safe Premier Installer means you can trust us to:
- Assess the safety levels of your existing gates and barriers
- Advise you on the safest and most suitable gate and barrier solutions for your individual needs
- Ensure new gates and barriers are installed to the highest levels of safety standards
- Be committed to upholding the highest standards of professionalism and safety.
Gareth Swindells, Operations Director commented, “Whilst all of our employees at GT Perimeter Protection have many years of experience installing and maintaining a wide range of gates and barriers, we felt it was important the company went through a formal process to gain an industry recognised accreditation. Achieving Gate Safe accreditation will reassure our customers that GT Perimeter Protection can be fully trusted to safely supply, install and maintain their gates and barrier solution”.
