Facilities in Lift Installations for People with Disabilities

John Inglis

Wednesday 1st June 1988

This paper will cover the situation ‘Down Under’ regarding the disabled people’s requirement in relation to lifts and how the Code rules were developed in conjunction with a committee philosophy to satisfy the expressed needs of these lift users. During the drafting of the rules, many overseas codes and documents were reviewed. Special consideration was given to the operating functions that would provide ‘independent access’ for the users.
