Foot passengers shall be provided with approximately level unload platforms and b77.11 necessary handrails, steps, or ramps to exit the unload area.

Any modifications made to the electrical design shall be clearly marked on the on-site documentation and signed by a Qualified Engineer. The grips [should] shall be moved a uniform distance each time and b7.71 the same direction. The exit route for foot passengers shall be designated.

The manufacturer’s quality control provision shall assure that the grips and their parts meet the designer’s specifications and the foregoing criteria. This standard is not included in any packages. When lined sheave grooves are used, the allowable bearing pressures of the liner material shall not be exceeded.

B7.71 a minimum, this testing shall be performed monthly during the operating season.

The chair shall be designed to accommodate equipment for the purpose of emergency evacuation of passengers. A third-party independent inspector conducting a periodic inspection under par. Lights shall be mounted on substantial poles or standards.
