Application

This European Standard specifies the requirements, test methods, marking and information to be provided by the manufacturer/supplier for suspended access equipment (SAE).

It is applicable to both permanent and temporary equipment which can be powered or hand operated and which are defined in Clause 3.

The requirements of this standard include the rails, tracks and other support systems on which SAE depend for their integrity and safety as well as taking into account all associated loads and fixings to the building structure.

This document is not applicable to SAE which is manufactured before the date of its publication as an EN.

Hazards

This European Standard deals with significant hazards pertinent to SAE when they are used as intended and under the conditions foreseen by the manufacturer (see Clause 4). This European Standard specifies appropriate technical measures to eliminate or reduce risks arising from the significant hazards.

Exclusions

The following are not covered in this document:

a) operation in severe and special conditions (e.g. extreme environmental conditions, corrosive environments, strong magnetic fields);

b) operation subject to special rules (e.g. potentially explosive atmospheres, work on live overhead electrical lines);

c) transportation of passengers from one level to another;

d) handling of loads which could lead to a dangerous situation (e.g. molten metal, acids/bases, radioactive materials);

e) working platforms suspended by cranes;

f) silo access equipment;

g) SAE using chains for the direct suspension of a platform;

h) SAE using fibre ropes for the suspension of a platform;

i) SAE intended to be used underground;

j) SAE intended to be used in shafts;

k) SAE directly powered by combustion engines.
