WSC SAFETY

SAFE OPERATION OF WSC MAIN GATE

We kindly ask that all members be aware of the structures and facilities around them and allow time and space to move safely from rack to water.

Importantly outside the yard, the pathway and ramp are public areas, please take the time to look both ways for walkers, cyclists, runners, strollers, scooters, pets and anyone using these areas – for the protection of your own skis, kayaks and boats and the safety of the general public.  Please take extra care in the early mornings before sunrise when visibility may be limited.

 FOB/Cards are NOT distributed to junior members or children – only adults. Again we ask with safety in mind, please be aware if children are present when you are using the FOB/Cards and keep them well away. As most of this activity takes place before 8am, children are rarely in the area but please be conscious of general public around the site.

When leaving the yard:

  1. Swipe your FOB/Card on the inside.
  2. The gate will take 30 secs to fully open. Hence creating a safe exit from the yard.
  3. The gate remains in the open position (and silent) for 30 secs. THIS IS THE IDEAL TIME TO SAFELY LEAVE THE YARD.
  4. The gate return process (ensuring a locked site) will then commence automatically and it takes the gate 30 secs to fully close – You can hear the motor running as this closure occurs. IT IS STRONGLY RECOMMENDED TO NOT ATTEMPT LEAVING THE YARD WHILE THE GATE IS CLOSING.
  5. During this time the dual sensors are active and if you cross the path of the sensors – located at around 40 cms and 100cms from the ground – the gate will stop its process, pause, return to fully open and then recommence closure.

Returning to the Yard from the ramp:

  1. Place your ski/kayak on the grass.
  2. Swipe your FOB/Card on the outside. Return to your ski/kayak and be ready to enter the yard.
  3. The gate will take 30 secs to fully open. Hence creating a safe entry to the yard.
  4. The gate remains in the open position (and silent) for 30 secs. THIS IS THE IDEAL TIME TO SAFELY RETURN TO THE YARD.
  1. The gate closure process will then commence automatically and it takes the gate 30 secs to fully close – You can hear the motor running as this closure occurs. IT IS STRONGLY RECOMMENDED TO NOT ATTEMPT RETURNING TO THE YARD WHILE THE GATE IS CLOSING.
