European Standards

En_81-80_sEN81-80 is a European Standard that governs the rules for the improvement of safety of existing passenger and goods/passenger lifts.

Based on established risk assessment principles, the Standard identifies where hazards can occur and, from a risk analysis viewpoint, illustrate these in high, medium and low priority with proposed corrective actions.

The Standard recognises circumstances will vary between countries and from one lift to another. It provides a comprehensive check-list of such hazards even though relatively few might require attention in the case of any individual lift installation.
