Providing a framework to ensure the safe and compliant installation of industrial doors and roller shutters, the code draws on safety legislation, European standards, and industry best practice. It gives practical help to all those involved with industrial doors by providing clear guidance on their legal obligation and responsibilities. The code took more than nine months to develop and going forward, will form the basis of the DHF comprehensive two-day Industrial Door Safety Diploma course. The DHF’s Industrial Door Group now represents more than 273 UK manufacturers, suppliers, installers or maintainers of industrial doors and industrial door equipment. “We welcome the release of DHF TS 012:2018 and see this 40 » M AR 2018 » CL EARVI E W- UK . C O M as the ‘bible’ for those working with industrial doors and roller shutters,” says DHF Industrial Door Group Chairman, Dave Lewis. “Currently, there are too many untrained people working in the sector and with some of these products weighing up to three tonnes, safety is absolutely vital. If a door falls from 25-30 foot in the air causing an accident, the consequences can be life-changing for all concerned.” “This new DHF code of practice condenses and refines information from UK and European law and standards to provide accurate, clear reference and guidance for those working with industrial doors,” says DHF CEO, Bob Perry. “Reducing the ‘grey areas’ and supporting the requirements for competence and training at all levels in the process, we are confident that DHF TS 012:2018 will become the benchmark reference document setting standards across the industry.” The Code of Practice DHF TS 012:2018 is available now from the DHF website.
