It includes general sections on planning, selection, siting, erection and dismantling, personnel, maintenance, inspection and repair as well as sections which deal with the specific operating and testing requirements of materials-only hoists and personnel-and-material hoists. An appendix provides an example of an inspection and testing certificate. It is intended for use with AS 2550.1 and AS 1418.7 which specify the design requirements for such appliances.
