Safety Handbook

This Handbook is designed to provide a resource for safety information that the elevator industry field employees shall use to help prevent injuries and illnesses resulting from unsafe acts and/or conditions. The intent of the Handbook is to promote job site safety through adherence to OSHA safety regulations and by defining recommended safe work practices affecting the elevator industry and other trades working with us.

It is intended to augment a company safety program. It is not intended to be used as the total company safety program (policy). All elevator industry employees should familiarize themselves with the contents of this Handbook. The safety procedures apply to all persons working on elevator, escalator, moving walk, material lift and dumbwaiter equipment directly employed by elevator companies, inspection companies and AHJ's who qualify with proper training.

Edited by the NEII Safety Committee to include the most up-to-date safety procedures for protection of field employees on every construction site or maintenance job.

The Elevator Industry Field Employees' Safety Handbook is subject to ongoing review by the NEII® Field Employee Safety Committee, to clarify, update and modify the contents, in line with current industry practices and applicable regulations. In the past revisions were held until sufficient material was available to justify the cost of publishing a supplement.  Any future Elevator Industry Field Employees' Safety Handbook revisions will be published electronically on this page as soon as they are approved. Printed supplements will also be published periodically. The NEII® Field Employee Safety Committee recommends that employers check this site periodically. When a revision is posted, copies of revisions should be printed and given to all field employees. Revisions should be implemented immediately after they have been distributed.
