Gate Safe is delighted to announce the addition of O.A.P Trustworthy to the charity’s growing list of official supporters.

O.A.P Trustworthy is an established national organisation that carefully vets and recommends professional services to some of the most vulnerable people in society, including the elderly and the disabled. Professional service providers who carry the O.A.P badge of accreditation have been thoroughly vetted to assess their suitability and must meet certain criteria including proof of success in the relevant professional qualifications, evidence of the appropriate business insurance, DBS (formally CRB) checked and ability to supply credible references. O.A.P Trustworthy applicants are also required to sign a unique code of practice before being welcomed as a member.

Commenting on the move to join forces with O.A.P Trustworthy, Gate Safe founder Richard Jackson said, “Gate Safe has always advised on the importance of the correct training to ensure an installer has the required knowledge and understanding to deliver a safe and compliant gate. All too often we witness gates that have been installed by what can only be described as ‘rogue traders’, those who take advantage of the vulnerable who may perhaps not be familiar with the dangers associated with automated gates, nor the fact that they need to be installed and maintained only by suitably trained personnel. O.A.P Trustworthy will be recommending the services of our Gate Safe Aware Approved installers. In return, we will promote the advantages of membership to O.A.P Trustworthy to our 600 strong Gate Safe Aware register.

Wayne Lindhardsen, owner and founder of O.A.P Trustworthy with Paul Sullivan added, “Gate Safe Aware approved installers stand for all that O.A.P Trustworthy commends. Professional, trustworthy people who have invested in the requisite training to deliver a great job, charged at a fair price and with a proven commitment to the safety of all those who might come into contact with the gate.”
