Section 18-7. Requirements for equipment for lifting and moving employees

Work equipment for lifting and moving employees shall be designed so as to:
  1. a.
    prevent the platform or similar from falling down by suitable devices;
  2. b.
    prevent the employee from falling from the platform;
  3. c.
    prevent the employee from being crushed, trapped or struck;
  4. d.
    ensure that the employee is not exposed to danger and can leave the platform in the event of unintentional operational interruptions.
If the devices mentioned under (a) do not provide adequate safety due to the nature of the work site and height differences, the platform shall be secured by installing an additional rope with an enhanced safety coefficient. The ropes shall be inspected before each use.
