scope:

This document specifies the safety requirements for the construction and installation of power operated lifts attached to cranes and intended for access to workplaces on cranes, by authorized persons. This includes intended use, erection, dismantling, inspection and maintenance. The lift serves defined landing levels and has a load carrying unit which is:

a) designed for the transportation of persons and materials;

b) guided;

c) travelling vertically or along a path within 15 degrees maximum from the vertical;

d) supported by rack and pinion or suspended by steel wire ropes;

e) travelling with a speed not more than 1,0 m/s for permanent installed lifts and not more than 0,4 m/s for temporary installed lifts.

NOTE Annex A identifies the specific requirements applicable to the permanent installed lifts, respectively to the temporary installed lifts.

This document identifies hazards as listed in Clause 4 that arise during the various phases in the life of such equipment and describes methods for the elimination or reduction of these hazards when used as intended by the manufacturer.

This document does not specify the additional requirements for:

a) operation in severe conditions (e.g. extreme climates, strong magnetic fields);

b) noise;

c) operation subject to special rules (e.g. potentially explosive atmospheres);

NOTE Directive 2014/34/EU concerning equipment and protective systems intended for use in potentially explosive atmospheres can be applicable to the type of machine or equipment covered by this document. The present standard is not intended to provide means of complying with the essential health and safety requirements of Directive 2014/34/EU.

d) electromagnetic compatibility (emission, immunity);

e) handling of loads the nature of which could lead to dangerous situations;

f) the use of combustion engines;

g) hydraulic drive units;

h) hazards occurring during manufacturing process;

This document is not applicable to:

a) builders hoists according to EN 12158-1:2000+A1:2010, EN 12158-2:2000+A1:2010 and EN 12159:2012 and transport platform according to EN 16719:2018;

b) elevating control stations according to EN 14502-2:2005+A1:2008;

c) lifts according to EN 81-20:2014 and EN 81-50:2014;

d) work platforms carried on the forks of fork trucks;

e) work platforms;

f) funiculars;

g) lifts specially designed for military purposes;

h) mine lifts;

i) theatre elevators.

This document deals with the complete lift design but excludes the design of the crane. It includes the base frame and base enclosure of the lift but excludes the design of any concrete, hard core, timber or other foundation arrangement. It includes the design of mast ties and the design of anchorage parts between the mast tie and the crane structure. This document also includes the design of the landing gates and their fixings.

This document also deals with the information to be exchanged between the manufacturer of the lift and the crane user organization or the manufacturer of the crane.
