1.1 This European Standard deals with safety requirements for construction, manufacturing, installation, maintenance and dismantling of electrically operated stairlifts (chair, standing platform and wheelchair platform) affixed to a building structure, moving in an inclined plane and intended for use by persons with impaired mobility:

— travelling over a stair or an accessible inclined surface;

— intended for use by one person;

— whose carriage is directly retained and guided by a guide rail or rails;

— supported or sustained by rope (5.4.4), rack and pinion (5.4.5), chain (5.4.6), friction traction drive (5.4.7), and guided rope and ball (5.4.8).

1.2 The standard identifies hazards as listed in Clause 4 which arise during the various phases in the life of such equipment and describes methods for the elimination or reduction of these hazards when used as intended by the manufacturer.

1.3 This European standard does not specify the additional requirements for:

— operation in severe conditions (e.g. extreme climates, strong magnetic fields);

— operation subject to special rules (e.g. potentially explosive atmospheres);

— handling of materials the nature of which could lead to dangerous situations;

— use of energy systems other than electricity;

— hazards occurring during manufacture;

— earthquakes, flooding, fire;

— evacuation during a fire;

— stairlifts for goods only;

— concrete, hardcore, timber or other foundation or building arrangement;

— design of anchorage bolts to the supporting structure.

NOTE For the actual type of machinery, noise is not considered a significant nor relevant hazard.

1.4 This document is not applicable to power operated stairlifts which are manufactured before the date of publication of this document by CEN.

This document specifies principles of cognitive accessibility within the area of daily time management, followed by guidelines for their application in design. This will focus on identifying the critical variables in the design and construction of products (and common exceptions) that affect their usability for people with cognitive impairment. This document provides design recommendations for features and functions known to increase the accessibility of products and systems used to support daily time management for people with cognitive impairment regardless of age. This is done by presenting examples of the needs of people with cognitive impairment and specifically related limitations in daily time management. Each category is presented within a structure with a short presentation of the skill, followed by examples from a person that demonstrates the user’s needs and design recommendations. The categories are:

a) Perception of time

b) Orientation to time

c) Time management

d) Adapting to time demands

This document will not provide test methods and specific instructions for measuring and reporting on these variables, nor provide relevant product information, about intended use and users, to potential vendors and consumers.
