For your doors to be functioning correctly, they need to meet the standards set in the current legislation. All doors at workplaces need to be safe and subjected to a system of maintenance, according to Regulation 5 and 18 of the Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992.
Section 3 of the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 states that employers and the self-employed, as part of their work, need to ensure that the systems in their care are safe. This is the legislation we abide by in the UK, and when we carry out an inspection, there is an array of factors that we take into consideration before determining compliance. The main aspects that we test are the following:
- Structural Integrity
- Electrical Safety
- Warning Devices, Signage and Markings
- Risk Assessment
The importance of health and safety in the workplace cannot be ignored, and with our help, your doors will be functioning correctly. To ensure that your systems are compliant with current legislation, get in touch with a member of our team to arrange a free survey. To reach us, give us a call on 08009 178 583
