Escalator and moving walkway testing

Tests for safety on every level

As with lifts, the Occupational Safety Regulations (BetrSichV) also stipulates regular testing for escalators and moving walkways. The scope and periods of this periodic testing must be determined by the operator as part of a hazard assessment. DEKRA recommends carrying this out once per year.
