Part 6a - Working Safely
General
  • Control the lowering of equipment.
  • Adequate space and protection against live or
    moving equipment
  • Correct storage of materials
  • Handling and storage of chemicals
  • Door blocking device dont improvise
  • On arrival at site inform someone in authority.
  • Site safety risk assessment should be completed
  • Safety signs displayed.
  • Ensure safety of your colleagues
  • Report defects or dangerous conditions
  • Dismantling or Installation carried out in
    accordance with company policy

5
Part 6a - Working Safely
Working Alone
  • Before starting work ensure that the task can be
    carried out safely. If youre concerned about it
    contact your supervisor.
  • If youre on a site, tell the site rep where you
    are
  • Make sure others know where you are working and
    keep in contact.
  • Dont work alone in an unoccupied building.
  • Be aware of the threat of violence.

6
Part 6a - Working Safely
Working on observation or partially enclosed lifts
  • Wear suitable PPE to suit weather conditions,
  • Consider weather conditions before working in
    heavy rain, high wind, ice or snow,
  • On the car top, use fall prevention equipment if
    required,
  • Prevent tools falling from the car top,
  • Ensure exclusion zone is adequate, and clearly
    defined,
  • If you have to clean car windows or the lift well
    without the car stationary and the power locked
    off, ensure a safe system of work is maintained
    at all times.

7
Part 6a - Working Safely
In the Machine Room
  • Beware of
  • Holes in the floor or projections.
  • Overhead beams lower than head height
  • Unguarded machinery may move without warning
  • Exposed electrical connections or cables.
  • Access
  • Guard open access hatches and keep closed when
    not in use.
  • Close and lock machine room doors when unoccupied.

8
Part 6a - Working Safely
Machinery
  • Before starting work
  • Display safety signs at all landings,
  • Switch off the electrical or hydraulic supply and
    post a safety sign,
  • All personnel working on the equipment must
    separately lock off the electrical supply and
    test that the isolation has been successful,
  • On hydraulic systems, remove the valve lever and
    put it in a secure place.

9
Part 6a - Working Safely
Machinery
  • Working on Machinery
  • Dont operate machinery with the guards removed
    unless there is no other way to do it and you
    have a safe system of work
  • Clean rotating parts, ropes, chains, sheaves etc.
    with the power isolated.
  • Restore the power to reposition the machinery,
    but isolate again before recommencing work
    activities,
  • Always wear suitable gloves when inspecting
    ropes NEVER inspect them while they are moving

10
Part 6a - Working Safely
Machinery
  • After handwinding has been carried out,
  • Remove any separate handwinding wheel and brake
    release lever,
  • Re-fix the guards with the correct number of
    fixings,
  • Before the supply is restored, ensure that no one
    will be put into danger as a result

11
Part 6a - Working Safely
MRL Lifts
  • Familiarise yourself with the safe system of
    work for installing and maintaining this type of
    equipment,
  • The manufacturer should provide instructions
    detailing how to safely install and maintain the
    equipment.
  • Beware, on some lifts the car roof cannot support
    the weight of a person so manufacturers may
    specify work be carried out from the car. Signs
    should be displayed to warn of the hazard, but it
    may not be visible. 
  • With different design features, it may be
    difficult to undertake maintenance for the first
    time, a risk assessment should be carried out
    prior to starting work.

12
Part 6a - Working Safely
Safe Working with Electricity
  • The LEIA Safety Charter says
  • Electrically isolate and lock off when power is
    not required...
  • LOTO the supply when power is not required to
    perform the task.
  • Check that all electrical sources in the work
    area have been identified and isolated.
  • Ensure that you verify that the disconnection has
    been made
  • Verification Procedure
  • verify the test device by confirming voltage
    present
  • isolate the circuit
  • confirm the circuit is isolated using the test
    device
  • verify the test device on a separate circuit

NOTE You should use a proprietary test lamp or
two-pole voltage detector as recommended in HSE
Guidance Note GS38
13
Part 6a - Working Safely
Safe Working with Electricity
  • When working on live equipment, effective
    insulation and safe electrical working practices
    must be used
  • wear insulating rubber gloves until isolation is
    proven (gloves subjected to visual inspection and
    tests for air leakage)
  • use an insulating rubber mat,
  • fit an insulating shroud to protect against
    accidental contact with live terminals,
  • wear eye protection to protect against flashover
  • use insulated tools and maintain them in good
    condition,
  • Avoid the chance of earthing yourself by removing
    or covering jewellery, watches, rings, necklaces,
    bracelets etc.

14
Part 6a - Working Safely
Safe Working with Electricity
  • Give yourself as much room as possible and keep
    the area free of surplus material,
  • Try to obtain suitable light levels (200 lux) at
    point of work,
  • Replace equipment covers on completion of work as
    soon as possible,
  • Use the wiring diagrams to understand the circuit
    you are working on even though the main 3-phase
    isolator has been switched off, other sources may
    remain live
  • signals
  • transformers
  • door detectors
  • lighting
  • alarms
  • fans

15
Part 6a - Working Safely
Safe Working with Electricity
  • Consider isolation of these sources as part of
    the whole process not just in the controller,
  • Even after all power is isolated, there is still
    the danger of electric shocks from sources of
    stored energy
  • charged capacitors
  • VF drives
  • Discharge these or take precautions against any
    stored energy before working on them.

16
Part 6a - Working Safely
Safe Working with Electricity
  • Modifications to Circuitry and Software
  • Are you authorised to make changes to electrical
    circuits and software? All changes must be
    recorded on the wiring diagrams.
  • Safe use of shorting wires/ jumpers
  • The primary function of a shorting wire is to
    bypass a faulty component when fault finding and
    should only be used when there is no alternative,
  • Shorting wires should be manufactured
    specifically for the purpose and should be used
    as a controlled tool. Never use home-made
    shorting wires.

17
Part 6a - Working Safely
Safe Working with Electricity
  • Safe use of shorting wires/ jumpers
  • Shorting wires typically yellow in colour, 1
    meter long and labelled to identify the owner,
    WHY ?
  • Switch the car top control to inspection, landing
    call buttons out of circuit until the work is
    finished,
  • Ensure the equipment is electrically isolated
    whilst the short is fitted and removed,
  • Have a means of stopping the equipment in the
    work area. Check it for correct operation before
    you start after the shorting wires have been
    connected,

18
Part 6a - Working Safely
Safe Working with Electricity
  • Safe use of shorting wires/ jumpers
  • Landing locks and car door switches must never be
    shorted out at the same time.
  • The short must be removed as soon as possible
    after completion of the work,
  • If several shorts are in use, a register should
    be made to ensure all shorts are accounted for,
  • When leaving a job ensure all shorting wires have
    been removed from the equipment.
