Safety is of upmost importance within the manufacturing sector and there has been great progress made in recent years to improve the already high standards of safety for commercial doors.
Despite this, reports of accidents involving industrial door systems in commercial premises still occur from time to time, the majority of which could have been easily avoided.
Here we look at a few of the ways that accidents can be prevented, making door installations safer and more efficient for the businesses that they serve.
When the correct guidelines are followed, industrial door installations on commercial premises can be used hundreds of times each day without issue. At UK Rapid Doors we encourage our customers to train their operatives in the safe use of new industrial door installations, making them fully aware of safety procedures so accidents can be avoided.
The vast majority of accidents involving industrial doors occur when health and safety guidelines and best practice are not adhered to. Businesses in the UK are required by law to have a health and safety procedure in place, and it is highly recommended that the safe use of industrial door installations is integrated into those policies.
Potential safety issues with a new industrial door system will be addressed at the point of design and installation, so choosing an experienced and professional supplier will go a long way to ensuring all safety standards are met. As such, thorough safety testing should be a key part of fitting any new commercial door system.
Though modern commercial door installations are manufactured to a very high quality and can function for many years, maintenance is still an important factor in assuring that a system runs safely. We recommend scheduled checks to be made on old and new doors, just to make sure that everything is working as it should.
