BS EN 1756-2:2004 + A1:2009 Tail lifts. Platform lifts for mounting on wheeled vehicles. Safety requirements. Tail lifts for passengers

BS EN 1756-2 specifies safety requirements for design of tail lifts for mounting on wheeled passenger vehicles. Vehicles for the loading of disabled passengers onto aircraft and ships are included within the scope of the standard (although dock-mounted lifts are excluded).

BS EN 1756-2 also specifies the verification of such tail lifts and the safety information that shall be provided for their use.

BS EN 1756-2 deals with the technical requirements to minimise hazards which can arise during the operation of tail lifts.

BS EN 1756-2 applies to passenger tail lifts:

  • Used for the purpose of embarking and/or disembarking passengers to and from such vehicles
  • Intended to be fitted, temporarily or permanently, either inside or on the front, side or rear of the wheeled vehicle;
  • Driven either by hand or by electric power
  • Equipped with a platform to support passengers who may be pedestrians or riders in wheelchairs and may be accompanied by an attendant
  • Embarking and/or disembarking operations include the use of a tail lift to lift and/or lower passengers, and if specifically approved by the manufacturer, for use as a link bridge.

BS EN 1756-2 covers the significant hazards which could occur when a tail lift is used as intended and under the conditions foreseen by the manufacturer. A list of significant hazards is given in clause 4.

This document does not apply to tail lifts which are manufactured before the date of publication of this document by CEN.
