EN Safety of escalators and moving walks - Part 2: Rules for the improvement of safety of existing escalators and moving walks © ELA | T. Kausel | 6-Apr-17 | Page 1 H:\Normen\SNEE\Kausel EN ppt
Background European UnionMore 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. In today's legal environment, owners and maintenance companies must warrant a high degree of safety for users and service technicians. © ELA | T. Kausel | 6-Apr-17 | Page 2 H:\Normen\SNEE\Kausel EN ppt
Today‘s state of the art of safety Reducing the gap with EN 115-2Technology R & D, new standards in health and safety regulations EN115-2 EN115 A2:2004 EN115:1995 EN115 A1:1998 EN115:1983 C.I.R.A. Safety Existing escalators 1920 1969 1983 1995 2000 2001 2004 2008 2009 2010 © ELA | T. Kausel | 6-Apr-17 | Page 3 H:\Normen\SNEE\Kausel EN ppt
Approach of EN 115-2 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 © ELA | T. Kausel | 6-Apr-17 | Page 4 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 © ELA | T. Kausel | 6-Apr-17 | Page 5 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. © ELA | T. Kausel | 6-Apr-17 | Page 6 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 © ELA | T.

The Safety check list acc. EN 115-2 – The tool toIdentify the significant hazards on an existing escalator or moving walk Determine which type of protective measure(s) proposed by this standard is/are applicable Example of 5 out of 65 items: © ELA | T. Kausel | 6-Apr-17 | Page 10 H:\Normen\SNEE\Kausel EN ppt
National implementation of EN 115-2All 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 © ELA | T.

Legal environment Today's state of the art of safety is based onthe 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 © ELA | T.

6. Verification of improvement measuresBefore putting an escalator or moving walk back into service after major modifications it shall be subject to examinations and tests in accordance with national regulations Schindler: use of site acceptance protocol © ELA | T. Kausel | 6-Apr-17 | Page 18 H:\Normen\SNEE\Kausel EN ppt
Information for use Relating to a specific modification made to the unit, documentation related to use, maintenance, inspection and periodic checks shall be provided for those components which are modified or added as far as the safety of workers and users is affected © ELA | T.

Identification and evaluation of hazardous situationsBy risk analysis © ELA | T. Kausel | 6-Apr-17 | Page 20 H:\Normen\SNEE\Kausel EN ppt
The risk analysis Classification of priority levelsupgrading all existing units to the state-of-the-art for safety at the same time may not be possible subdivision of the hazardous situations in priority levels which then can be removed in several timed steps The safety levels of the risk profile according to ISO/TS have been used for classifying the priority levels © ELA | T.
