Hazard assessment for lifts
If the lift system is intended for passenger transport in commercial buildings or is used as work equipment, a hazard assessment according to BetrSichV in connection with the Technical Rules for Operational Safety (TRBS) 1111 is required. Suitable protective measures are to be derived from this. DEKRA can help you to identify risks at an early stage – and save you time and costs.
