CSA - B44-00
Safety Code for Elevators
|Publication Date:||1 January 2000|
This is the ninth edition of CSA Standard B44, Safety Code for Elevators. It supersedes the previous editions published in 1994, 1990, 1985, 1975, 1971, 1966, 1960, and 1938.
This Standard was originally prepared to meet a desire for uniform legislation throughout the various provinces and to replace the legislation previously existing in Canada, which had proved inadequate in view of the then prevailing elevator practices. Its primary purposes are to provide reasonable safety for those persons who come in contact with elevators, dumbwaiters, escalators, moving walks, and material lifts by establishing minimum standards for design, installation, and maintenance, and for adoption by regulatory authorities throughout Canada. It is also intended as a standard reference for use by architects, consulting engineers, elevator manufacturers, and owners.
