In recent years there has been an increasing demand for safe, reliable, innovative elevator products. The ASME A17.7/B44.7 Performance Based Code was developed to provide a structured process for ensuring safety while enabling innovation.
This is a MasterClass that provides a broad understanding of the application of the A17.7/B44.7 Performance Based Code. Practical examples including a Risk Assessment exercise requiring active group participation will be used to demonstrate the application of the A17.7/B44.7 Code and the roles and responsibilities of the Manufacturer, AECO, and the Enforcing Authority.
On completion of this ASME MasterClass, you will be able to:
- Apply the requirements of the A17.7/B44.7 Code
- Describe the relationship of the A17.7/B44.7 Code to the A17.1/B44 Code
- Explain Global Essential Safety Requirements and Safety Parameters
- Participate fully and efficiently in Risk Assessment Studies, and describe the process of hazard mitigation and risk reduction
- Describe how Code Compliance Documents are to be prepared, including the information that needs to be provided
- Describe the roles and responsibilities of Accredited Elevator/Escalator Certification Organizations (AECOs) and enforcing agencies
- Explain the inspection and test procedural information that is required to be available at the elevator site
Each participant will receive a copy of the A17.7/B44.7 Performance-Based Safety Code for Elevators and Escalators Codebook.
