WAC 296-96-23245

What requirements apply to signs on freight elevators?

In addition to the capacity plate or painted sign required by WAC 296-96-23244, two other signs must be installed or painted inside the car in a conspicuous place and permanently and securely fastened to the car enclosure. They must be durable and easily read with 1/2 inch letters, as follows:
(1) In elevators not permitted to carry passengers, the sign must read "This is not a passenger elevator; no persons other than the operator and freight handlers are permitted to ride on this elevator."
(2) In elevators permitted to carry employees, the sign must read "No passengers except employees permitted."
