1 © ELA | T. Kausel | 12-Oct-14 | Page 1 H:\Normen\SNEE\Kausel EN ppt EN Safety of escalators and moving walks - Part 2: Rules for the improvement of safety of existing escalators and moving walks

2 © ELA | T. Kausel | 12-Oct-14 | Page 2 H:\Normen\SNEE\Kausel EN ppt Background European Union In today's legal environment, owners and maintenance companies must warrant a high degree of safety for users and service technicians. ─More than escalators and moving walks are in operation ─More than 50% were installed in the last century ─These machines are operational at different safety levels with different risk levels which may cause accidents.

3 © ELA | T. Kausel | 12-Oct-14 | Page 3 H:\Normen\SNEE\Kausel EN ppt Today‘s state of the art of safety Reducing the gap with EN Technology R & D, new standards in health and safety regulations Safety Safety Existing escalators C.I.R.A. EN115:1983 EN115:1995 EN115-1 EN EN115 A1: EN115 A2:

4 © ELA | T. Kausel | 12-Oct-14 | Page 4 H:\Normen\SNEE\Kausel EN ppt Approach of EN ─Categorization of hazards and hazardous situations, each of which has been analyzed by a risk assessment ─Provision of corrective actions to −Improve, step by step, the safety of all existing units to today’s state of the art for safety −Enable each unit to be audited and safety measures to be identified and implemented −List the high, medium and low risks and corrective actions which can be applied in separate steps in order to mitigate (reduce) the risks

5 © ELA | T. Kausel | 12-Oct-14 | Page 5 H:\Normen\SNEE\Kausel EN ppt Use of this standard −National authorities to determine their own programs of implementation in a step by step process −Process in a reasonable and practicable way −based on the level of risk (e.g. high, medium, low) and −social and economic considerations −Owners to follow their responsibilities according to existing regulations (e.g. Use of Work Equipment Directive) −Maintenance companies and/or inspection bodies to inform the owners on the safety level of their installations −Owners to upgrade the existing units on a voluntary basis

6 © ELA | T. Kausel | 12-Oct-14 | Page 6 H:\Normen\SNEE\Kausel EN ppt The Scope ─This European Standard gives rules for improving the safety of existing escalators and moving walks => Aims to reach an equivalent level of safety to that of a newly installed escalator and moving walk by the application of today’s state of the art for safety.

7 © ELA | T. Kausel | 12-Oct-14 | Page 7 H:\Normen\SNEE\Kausel EN ppt The Scope ─This standard includes the improvement of safety of existing escalators and moving walks for: −Users −Maintenance and inspection personnel −Persons outside the escalator or moving walk (but in its immediate vicinity) −Authorized persons ─This standard is not applicable to: −Safety during transport, installation, repairs and dismantling of escalators and moving walks −Spiral escalators −Accelerating moving walks

8 © ELA | T. Kausel | 12-Oct-14 | Page 8 H:\Normen\SNEE\Kausel EN ppt List of significant hazards

9 © ELA | T. Kausel | 12-Oct-14 | Page 9 H:\Normen\SNEE\Kausel EN ppt List of significant hazards

10 © ELA | T. Kausel | 12-Oct-14 | Page 10 H:\Normen\SNEE\Kausel EN ppt ─Identify the significant hazards on an existing escalator or moving walk ─Determine which type of protective measure(s) proposed by this standard is/are applicable The Safety check list acc. EN – The tool to Example of 5 out of 65 items:

11 © ELA | T. Kausel | 12-Oct-14 | Page 11 H:\Normen\SNEE\Kausel EN ppt National implementation of EN ─All technical solutions for upgrading to the state-of-the- art are listed in Clause 5 of this standard ─No binding requirements for measures to be carried out on which unit and within which period of time  Subject to national legislation  The given procedures are intended to assist in setting up national regulations  Conclusion: this standard gives examples and templates, but they have to be introduced by national recommendations or laws

13 © ELA | T. Kausel | 12-Oct-14 | Page 13 H:\Normen\SNEE\Kausel EN ppt Legal environment ─Today's state of the art of safety is based on ─the European Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC, ─the harmonized standard EN (Safety of escalators and moving walks – Construction and installation) and ─the standard EN (Rules for the improvement of safety of existing escalators and moving walks) ─National laws and regulations related to work and operation safety
