Elevators

Potential Hazards:
  • Overloading. Know the combined weight of the load and the truck.
  • Damage to floor.
  • Insufficient overhead clearance and space in elevator.
Requirements and Recommended Practices:
  • Ensure the elevator has a rated capacity to safely lift the combined weight of the load and the truck.
  • Approach elevators slowly and enter squarely after the elevator car is properly leveled. Once on the elevator, neutralize the controls, shut off the power, and set the brakes. [29 CFR 1910.178(n)(12)]
  • Ensure adequate overhead clearance for truck and space in elevator for the truck and operator.
