For £450 + VAT employers are able to ensure their automatic door technician has received thorough training and guidance for the BS EN16005.
Once the candidate has completed an ADIA Health & Safety test (required by CSCS), they will be able to start their BS EN16005 studies.
As well as online independent study, engineers are also required to attend an assessment day where our trainer will go over many aspects of the BS EN16005. The group will then have to complete practical assessments to demonstrate their knowledge in a real life situation on a variety of door types. This is to ensure they have the understanding and knowledge of safety procedures when installing and maintaining automatic doors. Once the trainer is happy with the completion of the assessments, an exam is taken as a final step to show the theory of automatic door safety is understood.
Without this training you could be paying a much higher price.
For example, an article in the Telegraph described the claims from accidents at popular tourist destinations such as the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. A payout of £23,651 and legal fees of £29,863 were made to a woman who was injured in a revolving doo at this popular destination. Another example of a payout was to a man who was injured by a sliding door at a leading supermarket for £3,500 which could train at least 6 automatic door engineers.
It takes one accident to damage the reputation of a company and could ruin someone’s life. An automatic gate engineer is now in prison for not properly installing a gate that resulted in the death of Jill Lunn.
Ensure ALL of your engineers sit the BS EN16005 accredited by City & Guilds and receieve their CSCS cards. Those hiring should check if they are listed on the DoorSafe Register before employing anyone to work on their doors.
