As a completely independent body with a long standing reputation in gate safety, Gate Safe is able to provide a full risk assessment to ensure any gate/barrier is compliant with the EU Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC and is operating safely.

Site Survey

Gate Safe will attend site to undertake a full risk assessment on the gate/barrier to assess its current safety and operating performance. Following the site visit, Gate Safe provides a full risk assessment and written report summarising the findings from the survey. This will provide a clear explanation of the possible solutions recommended to upgrade the machinery to deliver a safe and compliant installation. Photographs are included to highlight any areas of concern.

Gate Safe is unable to provide costings for any potential works; we suggest you speak to a Gate Safe Aware Installer for an accurate quotation.

Independent survey prices are based on distance travelled and number of gates to be surveyed. Please contact Gate Safe to discuss your requirements.

Desk Based Risk Assessment

Gate Safe is also able to undertake a desk based risk assessment based on information provided by the gate owner along with photographs/video of the gate. This evidence offers a good indication of the current safety of the gate. Upon review of these materials, Gate Safe will forward a written report summarising any suggested upgrades which may be required.

Gate Safe can only assess the gate/barrier based on the information provided so this type of risk assessment is unable to take into consideration the force used to operate the gate.

Expert Witness

There are occasions when court proceedings have been initiated following an automated gate accident, where an impartial view is required to determine whether or not a gate is deemed safe in line with current health and safety recommendations. As the pioneering body associated with the promotion of automated gate safety, Gate Safe has been invited to act as an ‘Expert Witness’ in such scenarios.
