FOREWORD

Following the publication of the first edition of the American Standard Safety Code for Elevators in 1925, requests for a handbook or manual covering the inspection of elevators were received by the Sectional Committee, presentfy called the Standards Committee of tbe Safety Code for Elevators, Dumbwaiters, Escalators, and Moving Walks, A 17. This Committee appointed a subcommittee to prepare such a manual. Cities, states, insurance companies, elevator manufacturers and maintenance companies, and the Federal Government furnished the committee with material based on their field experiences. A final draft was prepared and was unanimously approved by the Sectional .Committee, the Code Sponsors, and the American Standards Association (presently the American National Standards Institute) and the edition of the Manual was published in 193 7 simultaneously with the third edition of the Code.

Since the publication of the first edition of the Manual, a fourth edition of the Code including revisions approved by The American Standards Association in 1942, was published in 1945. A second edition of the Manual was prepared by the committee to bring it in line with the fourth edition of the Code and a new Part III was added to cover the inspection of escalators. In addition, new appendices were added covering descriptions of various types of undercar safeties, method for determining stopping distances of sliding safeties, guide rail data, and types of overspeed governors and the handling and socketing of wire rope. The second edition of the Manual was approved by the American Standards Association and was published in 1945. The third edition of the Manual was published in J.960 and included revisions to bring it in line with the 1960 edition of the A 17.1 Code.

The Inspectors' Manual Subcommittee was reactivated after publication of the 1965 edition of the A 17.1 Code. This fourth edition of the Manual updates the inspection procedures for elevators, dumbwaiters, and escalators, and includes a new Part IV to cover inspection of moving walks. ·

This edition was approved by the American National Standards Institute on May 29, 1973.
