AMENDMENT OF THE LIST OF SAFETY STANDARDS APPLICABLE TO THE LIFT, ESCALATOR AND PASSENGER CONVEYOR REGULATIONS, 2010

Title: Occupational Health and Safety Act (Act 85 of 1993), as amended, Incorporation of Safety Standards into Lift, Escalator and Passenger Conveyor Regulations, 2010
Government Gazette Notice: GN 484 in GG 41622 of 11 May 2018
Commencing date: 11 May 2018

The chief inspector amended the safety specifications in the Lift, Escalator and Passenger Conveyor Regulations, 2010 in terms of section 27(1) of the Occupational Health and Safety Act 85 of 1993, by replacing SANS 50081-1 and SANS 50081-2 with SANS 50081-20 and SANS 50081-50.

Units sold after 29 November 2019 will have to comply with requirements of SANS 50081-20 and SANS 50081-50. During the interim period units sold and installed are expected to comply with either SANS 50081-1 and SANS 50081-2 or SANS 50081-20 and SANS 50081-50.

So what for my operation?
When purchasing lifts escalators and passenger conveyors for installation ensure that the units comply with the requirements of either SANS 50081-1 and SANS 50081-2 or SANS 50081-20 and SANS 50081-50.

If you are a manufacturer of lifts escalators and passenger conveyors units, compliance outputs are changing and new units must be aligned with the new requirements.
