Why should you use this standard?

BS 8486 looks at all the factors that should be taken into account when examining new lifts and their components. Part 1 sets out the minimum requirements for the inspection, electrical testing and recording of relevant results to ensure maximum safety. The standard gives best-practice recommendations relating to performance testing, and to the commissioning, maintenance and installation of electrical lifts.  It also provides up-to-date information on remote alarms, accessibility, anti-vandalism measures and fire safety in lifts.
