AS 4722 – 2009 Passenger Ropeways and Passenger Conveyors
AS 4722 – 2009 Passenger Ropeways and Passenger Conveyors sets out requirements and guidance for the design, construction, operation, inspection, testing and maintenance of passenger ropeways and passenger conveyors within the scope of CSA Z98-07.
This Standard was prepared by Standards Australia Constituted Subcommittee, ME-051-01, Amusement Rides and Devices—Passenger Ropeways and Conveyors, formed under Committee ME-051, Amusement Rides and Devices. It was prepared to provide a Standard that addressed both ropeways used for transport at snowfields and those used as amusement rides.
The objective of this Standard is to provide designers, manufacturers, proprietors and operating staff with requirements and guidance specific to the design, construction, operation and maintenance of passenger ropeways and passenger conveyors that will protect the health and safety of both operating staff and patrons of these devices.
This Standard references and modifies the requirements of Canadian Standards Association publication CSA Z98-07, Passenger ropeways and passenger conveyors. The Canadian Standard has traditionally been used for requirements for passenger ropeways in Australia. The Subcommittee has kept Australian variations to this standard to a minimum and has informed the relevant Canadian committee of these so they can be considered for incorporation in a future edition of CSA Z98.
It should be noted that compliance with this Standard alone does not necessarily ensure that all legal obligations are being fulfilled.
Statements expressed in mandatory terms in notes to tables are deemed to be requirements of this Standard.
This Standard covers:
- 1 SCOPE
- 2 REFERENCED DOCUMENTS
- 3 DEFINITIONS
- 4 CANADIAN REFERENCED DOCUMENTS
- 5 VARIATIONS TO CANADIAN REQUIREMENTS
