Walking into a stationery chain store last weekend, I noticed that the
"Daily Safety Check" sticker positioned by the automatic door
manufacturer on the door frame had been almost completely covered with
an electrical conduit. There were no other stickers located adjacent to
The manufacturers of all automatic doorways require that a Daily Safety
inspection be made to every automatic doorway every day prior to the start
of business. They provide owner's manuals, often have their inspection
information online, but to alert the management or owner of an automatic
doorway, they first place a daily safety inspection sticker near the operating
controls of the door. That sticker comes from the manufacturer, already
attached at specific locations so that there is a constant daily reminder
to check all of the automatic door functions before the general public
enters the store each day.
Working as the office manager and assistant for the nation's leading
automatic door expert witness, I am definitely more tuned in to the workings
of all automatic doors. We get a dozen or more calls a week from plaintiff
and defense attorneys that request the services of Mike Panish, Automatic
Door & Sensor Expert Witness, after a person was injured when passing
through an automatic door of some kind.
