14.1.4 Safety Standards
The applicable safety standards for the construction of levellator skirts, guards and handrails
are contained in section 1910.44 of the Federal OSHA Standards. Many state and municipal
code inspection authorities also publish safety standards for levellators.
14.2.1 Landings
Adequate lighting of not less than three foot-candles should be provided at each floor landing
at all times when the levellator is in operation. Check with a calibrated light meter. The floor
space adjacent to floor openings should be free from obstructions and kept clear at all times. The
landing surfaces at the entrances and exits to levellators should be so constructed and maintained
as to provide a safe footing at all times.
