Automatic Doors – Occupier Obligations

13 July, 2021

At Safetell, safety is always top of our priority list, therefore we train occupiers on the use of power-operated doors. This training includes matters such as:

  1. Advice to children and parents to reduce risk
  2. Advice to elderly, infirm and people with disabilities to reduce risk
  3. Taking action in an emergency
  4. Routine occupier maintenance e. g. wiping safety sensors
  5. Appropriate signage to BS 7036-0 2014
  6. Weekly safety inspections and provide a QR code labels with free access to online training videos
  7. Keeping the Logbook up to date and provide replacements if the Logbook is lost or misplaced. A Logbook should be stored and maintained.
    It includes:
    • Contact details of the manufacturer
    • Unique ID
    • Door Location/s
    • All service, repair and adjustments made
    • Date of completion of installation
    • Recommendations
    • ID of any protective devices


Take a look below at ADSA’s videos which demonstrate Occupier Safety Checks (required at least weekly).
