WAC 296-96-05010

Definition and use.

(1) These rules define a "standard application material lift" as a fixed stationary conveyance that:
(a) Has a car or platform moving in guides;
(b) Serves two or more floors of a building or structure;
(c) Has a vertical rise of at least 5 ft. and no more than 60 ft.;
(d) Has a maximum speed of 50 ft./min.;
(e) Is not part of a conveying system but is an isolated self-contained lift;
(f) Travels only in an inclined or vertical direction;
(g) Is operated or supervised by an individual designated by the employer;
(h) Is installed in a commercial or industrial area not accessible to the general public; and
(i) May not be operated from within the car.
(2) Standard application material lifts shall not carry people so their operation or failure will not endanger people working near them. WAC 296-96-05010 through 296-96-05290 establishes requirements for the construction, installation, and operation of standard material lifts.
These rules do not apply to conveyances that lack a car (platform) and use rollers, belts, tracks, power conveyors, or similar carrying (loading) surfaces. (See ASME/ANSI B20.1.)
