10.1.4 Applicable Safety Standards
The applicable safety standards for the construction, maintenance, inspection and operation of
manlifts is contained in ANSI A90.1-1976 Safety Standard for Manlifts and section 1910.68 of
the Federal OSHA Standards for Manlifts. Many state and municipal code inspection authorities
also publish safety standards for manlifts. Because there have been many incidences of
accidents to persons on or about manlifts with numerous fatalities, a number of local code
enforcement bodies have outlawed their use. The Navy does not allow any new manlifts to be
installed for this very reason.
