Gate engineer jailed for causing death
The BBC has just reported a gate engineer from Norwich has been given a 42-month prison sentence after a gate he installed fell on a woman outside her house.

The DHF (Door & Hardware Federation) had recently stressed the possible legal consequences of failing to ensure the safety of gates following the conviction of a gate engineer for causing the death of woman.

The guilty verdict comes just weeks after the DHF initiative Gate Safety Week, which aims to educate and create awareness around the installation and maintenance of automated gates, drawing attention to specific issues such as poor installation and maintenance.
