This document applies to stationary, mobile and movable vehicle lifts, which are not intended to lift persons but which are designed to raise vehicles totally, for the purpose of examining and working on or under the vehicles whilst in a raised position. The vehicle lift may consist of one or more lifting-units.

Power supply to the vehicle lift by internal combustion engines is not considered.

The floor or ground supporting the vehicle lift in use is assumed to be horizontal.

This document does not exclude a person to enter in a lifted vehicle on wheel supporting lifts, e.g. for special works or for periodical technical inspection, and vehicle lifts for rail-bound vehicles.

This document does not contain requirements for hazards which may arise on vehicle lifts where the carrying device can be tilted.

This document is not valid for equipment for power driven parking of motor vehicles (see EN 14010). This document is applicable to vehicle lifts which are manufactured six month after the date of its publication as EN.

1.1 This document specifies the safety requirements for lifting tables with the following characteristics:

— serving no more than 2 fixed landings but are able to pass a fixed landing and,

— having a vertical travel speed of no more than 0,15 m/s, unless safe by position and,

— for raising or lowering goods (with or without operator(s) and/or authorized person(s)), or;

— for raising or lowering operator(s) and/or authorized person(s) with or without goods, to positions where they can carry out work from a fixed or movable lifting table that is guided throughout its vertical travel only.

1.2 This document deals with all significant hazards pertinent, with the exception of noise, to lifting tables when used as intended and under the conditions foreseen by the manufacturer (see List of Hazards, Annex B). This document specifies the appropriate technical measures for eliminating and reducing the risks arising from the significant hazards.

1.3 This document does not apply to the following equipment:

— lifting tables with a vertical travel speed exceeding 0,15 m/s, unless safe by position;

— lifting tables, serving more than 2 fixed landings of a construction, for lifting goods, with a vertical travel speed not exceeding 0,15 m/s (EN 1570-2);

— lifting tables, serving more than 2 fixed landings of a construction, for lifting operators, with a vertical travel speed not exceeding 0,15 m/s;

— lifting tables carrying operators and installed in full enclosures with a vertical travel speed not exceeding 0,15 m/s;

— lifting tables used on ships;

— lifting tables designed for artists and stage set features during artistic performances;

— power operated lifting platforms for persons with impaired mobility (EN 81-41);

— mobile lifting tables for airport ground support equipment (EN 1915-2 and EN 12312-1);

— lifting tables which are designed as part of a lift according to Directive (95/16/EC);

— mobile elevating work platforms (EN 280);

— static Group B elevating work platforms (EN 280);

— vehicle servicing lifts (EN 1493:2010);

— mobile lifting tables used for firefighting (EN 1777);

— mobile lifting tables with a horizontal travelling speed of more than 1,6 m/s;

— rail dependent storage and retrieval equipment (EN 528);

— scissor lift pallet trucks (EN ISO 3691-5);

— lifting tables suspended from a ceiling.

1.4 This document does not consider the additional requirements for:

— electromagnetic compatibility;

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

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

— handling of loads, the nature of which could lead to dangerous situations (e.g. molten metal, acids, radiating materials, particularly brittle loads, loose loads (gravel, tubes));

— hazards occurring during construction, transportation and disposal;

— equipment installed on the load platform or the replacing or maintaining of it;

— integration into broader systems or other machines, etc.;

— cable-less controls;

— lifting tables where the hydraulic pressure is derived directly from gas pressure;

— lifting tables powered by internal combustion engines.
