Manlift Safety Notice
Attention All Belt Manlift Users: The ASME A90 Committee has revised the Safety Standard for Belt Manlifts. The new standard is the ASME A90.1-2009 (Revision of ASME A90.1-2003) Safety Standard for Belt Manlifts.
Please make sure all your belt manlifts are in compliance with this code, as well as all state and/or local codes.
All Humphrey Belt Manlifts are built of heavy-duty construction and designed in accordance with the ASME (American Society of Mechanical Engineers) A90.1 Safety Standard for Belt Manlifts, arguably the most comprehensive and up-to-date lift standards in the industry.
The Humphrey Manlift Company offers several instructional pieces for use with its manlifts including a DVD that outlines the proper use of the Humphrey Belt Manlift as well as manflit inspection sheets to ensure appropriate care and maintenance of the equipment.
As with any equipment, manlifts should be inspected and maintained on a regular basis to ensure proper maintenance. Manlifts are only for use by individuals who have been fully trained in the use of the manlift in order to prevent accidents due to inexperience.
Humphrey Belt Manlifts are built with several safety features in place and follow the strict guidelines as required by ASME Standard. Safety features include, but are not limited to: track switches and other stop gaps at the top and bottom of the lift, overhead bar to prevent riding over the top, and hoods to protect individuals when passing through floors. Humphrey Belt Manlifts also come equipped with a safety stop brake, a feature that Humphrey Manlift Company has offered for over 30 years.
We encourage any company that has a manlift to continually inspect and maintain them as well as to make sure they are in compliance with the ASME Standard, as well as any applicable state and/or local codes. It is essential to have manlifts inspected by individuals qualified to inspect manlifts on a regular basis to ensure proper upkeep.
