The development of standards to establish safety requirements for manlifts. The standard developed by this committee applies to the manufacture, installation, maintenance, inspection, and operation of manlifts in relation to accident hazards. Manlifts covered by this scope consist of steps (platforms) and accompanying handholds mounted on, or attached to, an endless belt operating vertically in one direction only and being supported by, and driven through, pulleys at the top and bottom. These manlifts are intended for conveyance of persons only. It is not intended that this scope cover moving stairways, elevators with enclosed platforms (Patermoster elevators), gravity lifts, or conveyors used only for conveying materials.
