Lifts (elevators), escalators and moving walks -- Risk assessment and reduction methodology

ISO 14798:2009 establishes general principles and specific procedures for assessing risk. Its purpose is to provide a process for making decisions relevant to the safety of lifts during the

  • design, construction, installation and servicing of lifts, lift components and systems,
  • development of generic procedures for the use, operation, testing, compliance verification and servicing of lifts, and
  • development of technical specifications and standards affecting the safety of lifts.

While the examples given in ISO 14798:2009 refer primarily to risks of harm to persons, the risk assessment procedure it specifies can be equally effective for assessing other types of risk relevant to lifts, such as the risk of damage to property and environment.
