Bolton Gate, the nationwide industrial door and gate company, has seen its 30th powered gate engineer pass the Door & Hardware Federation (DHF) powered gate safety diploma training course.


Andrew Whistle, who joined the company last year, earned his diploma after attending the recent two-day training course held at Scunthorpe.


Bolton Gate, a member of the DHF, believes training is the key to raising safety standards in the industry and expects more than 40 of its powered gate engineers to attain DHF diploma status by the end of 2016.


Since the DHF Powered Gate Group set up the diploma training course two years ago, almost 600 personnel involved in the safety of automatically controlled powered gates – including installation engineers, inspectors and those responsible for gate maintenance – have successfully gained their gate safety diplomas.


The two-day training course is recognised as one of the most comprehensive powered gate training schemes in Europe.


Bolton Gate group health and safety manager Dave Brook said: ‘We’re totally committed to training our engineers to the highest standard of knowledge and compliance to meet current regulations, so enhancing our reputation as a reputable repair and maintenance provider.’


The powered gate training scheme is available to all individuals who are responsible for the installation, assessment and inspection of powered gates. The next training courses will be held on March 16 and 17 in Sutton in Ashfield; and April 13 and 14 in Stockport.
