Attendees on electrical courses issued new guidance

Technicians studying electrical courses may be interested to know about new advice released by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) in a recent podcast.

The organisation announced that a safety alert has been sent out to several manufacturers regarding the production and installation of electric gates.

Engineers attending electrical courses should take note of the advice from HSE director of field operations David Ashton, who revealed that children are getting caught in this type of equipment as the doors close.

"This safety alert ... is mainly aimed at those who manufacture and then install the large metal automatic gates, which we actually see pretty commonly," he said.

In his opinion, the technicians who install such entrance machinery have an obligation to fit it correctly, but the manufacturers must also look at the issue.

The previous health and safety bulletin from the HSE was aimed at companies which make or use Flemish eye crane pennants, as an issue had been reported regarding the incorrect manufacture of such items.
