Healthy and Safety Compliance: Why Regular Industrial Door Maintenance Matters

Installing a highly efficient industrial door is one step towards improving work productivity and health and safety within your facility. A high-speed door with a fast and automatic recovery is a key way to reduce the risk of injury or accident should something become obstructed in the door opening. However, by not sufficiently maintaining your door system you could be putting people’s safety at risk and become liable for any problems that do occur.


Why does an industrial door system need regular maintenance?

In April 2009, two employees were in the process of repairing a roller shutter door that had been damaged after being struck by a forklift truck. The door had been knocked off its guides however the frame structure was held to the wall by 8 bolts on each side.

When 6 of the bolts were removed on one side, they attempted to manipulate the door back into the slides, however the roller door fell onto them and trapped them both. Both employees suffered serious leg fractures.

Luckily their injuries weren’t fatal, however their injury and their subsequent leave from work could have simply been prevented by a regular door maintenance service.
