IMG_1204.-for-web-jpgOver 600 powered gate installation engineers and specialists have successfully completed the  gate safety diploma course run by the DHF Powered Gate Group.

The courses are held around the UK. With several more training sessions planned for the coming months, the number of qualified powered gate installation engineers and specialists is set to rise significantly.

It is compulsory for all DHF Powered Gate Group member companies to put their personnel through the training scheme. It allows member companies to use the DHF Safety Assured mark which is their customer assurance that specifiers and purchasers have made a responsible and safe choice when choosing and maintaining powered gates.

The DHF is also accelerating its drive to raise standards in other sectors by extending its training offering to companies that manufacture, install and maintain industrial doors and garage doors. Those training courses have just been launched are being held throughout 2016.

Said DHF CEO Bob Perry: ‘The high demand for our training schemes demonstrates our determination to carry on raising the safety bar. Specifiers, contractors and end users are increasingly recognising that the level of safety, quality and compliance offered by all our member companies is reinforced by comprehensive training. There must be no place in our industry for untrained personnel who supply and install unsafe and illegal products.’

The DHF gate safety diploma training scheme is open to employees of all DHF member companies and also to non-member individuals who are responsible for installation, assessment and inspection of powered gates.
