Nearly seven years since Gate Safe initiated a campaign for improved standards in automated gate safety, the charity marked another important milestone, as it celebrated hitting the target of 1,000 installers on its national register of Gate Safe Aware Installers – which currently features 459 companies.

The training session at Trade Skills 4 U was attended by 17 delegates, including four from Acctive Systems, signifying 1,000 trained Gate Safe Aware installers in the UK.

In recognition of this important anniversary, Acctive Systems was provided with a year’s supply of Gate Safe MOT stickers, Gate Safe Aware van stickers and high-vis Gate Safe Aware Installer vests.

Richard Jackson, founder of Gate Safe commented, “When we first launched our IOSH (Institution of Occupational Safety & Health) accredited training programme, our intention was always to establish a national register of installers who had undergone the necessary training to enable them to understand the requirements to deliver a safe and compliant automated gate. With such a broad (and consistently growing) spread of installers across the UK, the Gate Safe brand continues to grow both in terms of stature and reach.”
