Safety Barrier Testing


 

Barrier testing Barriers

 

Crush Barriers play an important role in crowd control and safety at sports grounds.

Load testing, assessment and inspection are fundamental to ensure that their performance meet the requirements of the ‘Code of Practice for Safety at Sports Grounds’.
A minimum of 25% is required to be load tested annually.
It is recommended in the code of practice that selecting the barriers for load test each year should be based on a risk assessment of the barriers with the sports ground.


The Code of Practice details the methods for testing, inspection and performance requirements.


Testing is performed by personnel with experience in this field and can be carried out for the sporting club directly or through their professional consultant.

On completion of testing, certification and recommendations are provided.
