Re: Service Elevator Ramp

Bill,
 
        I wasn't suggesting that the operator would actually be in a wheel chair; I was suggesting that  the slope used for that purpose might be something you could defend if you have no other guideline. You could also try calling up your local neighborhood Occupational Health and Safety guy.
 
Regards,

        I would expect that your codes have a requirement for maximum slope for wheel chair access ramps.  That might be a prudent place to start.
A refinery operator in a wheelchair.

Well, it could happen.
