DHF 1 Day training course in April


This one-day course addresses the safety of work in the automated gate and traffic barrier perimeter systems. It features examples of past failures and prosecutions, together with practical risk assessment to help reinforce the key learning points. Learning is heavily focused on, and supported by, use of DHF TS 011:2018 - Code of practice for installation, repair and maintenance of automated gates and traffic barriers.

At the end of each module there is a short test and there will be a written risk assessment task but this cannot be considered a qualification as the course is offered on an attendance basis.

Successful completion is rewarded with a certificate as proof of attendance.


  • Introduction
  • Requirements for safety and testing:
  • Commissioning checks
  • Risk assessment methodology
  • New system legislation overview
  • Structural integrity
  • Electrical safety and safety device test category
  • Enclosure fences, guards and safety distances
  • Crush, impact, shear and draw-in hazard protection
  • Testing of hazard control systems
  • Residual hazards and control
  • Existing system legislation overview


At the end of this course the candidate will have:

  • A thorough understanding of standards applying to automated gate and barrier systems
  • The ability to accurately conduct and document a risk assessment
  • Knowledge of the different types of system
  • An overview of legislation

Candidates cannot be considered competent installation or maintenance operatives on completion of this course as it does not include any practical or craft-based learning. Although it discusses the problems, standards and pitfalls of electrical work in this environment, it does not provide the knowledge or experience necessary to be considered electrically skilled. These very important craft-based skills and knowledge must be gained by supervised field experience and by attending relevant manufacturers’ product specific training.



This training course is aimed at automated gate and barrier installation & maintenance site operatives whose work output is being overseen and signed off by a full DHF Automated Gate Safety Diploma holder; it may also be relevant to some sales persons who want to expand their knowledge. Please note that it is however still a condition of DHF membership that there is at least one person (who is able to oversee and change existing, or implement new, legal compliance processes) at every member company who holds a current Automated Gate Safety Diploma qualification.


Candidates will require a good understanding of written and spoken English, together with a solid field-based understanding of the various types of automated gate and barrier systems currently in use.

This course is heavily subsidised by Rolling Center (normal price of the course is £495+vat for none members & £345+vat for DHF members)

We are offering the course at the cost of £230+vat per candidate.
