Hi Shane,

Oh, that sounds like progress!  Thanks for letting me know.

I'll try that.

Hi Helen

It might be worth your while making contact with Derek Smith at the Lift
and Elevator Industry Association (UK). When Derek spoke at our conference
in 2009, he mentioned that there were some new emerging standards in the
industry that would be moving away from these 'hold-to-run' buttons.

Regards

Shane

Hi all,

I have a proposition to put to you:

As a wheelchair user, I find continuous pressure buttons (hold to run) on
platform lifts a complete pain in every part.

I know it's mandatory, but I spoke to a lovely man this morning:

Graham Payne
Department for Business, Innovation & Skills
Environmental and Technical Regulation Directorate
Bay 1105, 1 Victoria Street
London SW1H 0ET
Tel: 020 7215  0923 / 1973
and Graham said that, if we thought they were A Bad Idea we could challenge
it with the HSE because he said that policies, guidelines and regulations
were ripped up all the time because they were found to be outdated.  He
also said that disabled people might be in a body which made such
decisions.
So, what are your views on this?  Have you had complaints from wheelchair
users who haven't been able to use platform lifts easily because of these
buttons, or have people been saved from potentially dangerous situations
because of them?  Indeed, do some people find them dangerous?
Who, if anyone, would be up for trying to change the status quo (OK, who
HASN'T got a guitar riff in their head now?!) and who thinks we should
leave well alone?
Sorry, that's a lot of questions!
I have to confess that somebody I know had an accident on a platform lift
without hold to run buttons, but I am unsure of the cause.
Cheers,
Helen
