Gate Safe Campaign

IIRSM supports Gate Safe’s campaign to improve education and training within the automated gates industry

Gate Safe was set up in 2010, in the wake of the tragic deaths of two children crushed by automated gates, in separate accidents. Gate Safe, which has been commended by the Health & Safety Executive (HSE) for its ‘pioneering approach’ was established to improve the understanding of existing legislation and standards, and to offer further guidance in ‘plain english’ to aid the interpretation of what constitutes a safe gate. The charity focuses on raising awareness of the critical safety issues associated with powered gates amongst the wide range of professionals associated with these types of installations, via training and education.
