Health and safety

Read below why we take our sector seriously

Health and safety

There are already a number of standards and codes of practice to be taken into consideration when designing, installing and maintaining automatic doors.

These include:
BS 7036. Although the British standard is being integrated into the EN standard, its signage and manifestation requirements will remain.

This is because it includes UK-specific guidance, whereas the EN standard is more generic.

The Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC. This outlines the legal requirements and obligations for safeguarding users of machinery. It defines only the essential health and safety requirements.

As an automatic door is a machine, it comes under the umbrella of the Machinery Directive.

EN 16005 is derived from this directive.

The Health and Safety Executive’s Workplace Health, Safety and Welfare Approved Code of Practice.

This is necessary as the HSE investigates all accidents involving power-operated doors.

The Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992.

This implemented an EU directive on minimum health and safety requirements for nearly all workplaces.

Equality Act 2010 (inclusive of the former Disability Discrimination Act) requirements.
