Install a suitable barricade at the door to be accessed and/or inside the car if required.
Place 2 car calls to higher floors preferably one to the floor directly above and another at a higher floor.
As the car is leaving the floor, stop the car in a position that will allow access to the pit by opening the

SPECIAL NOTE

When working at the lower level of the pit is required and the pit Emergency Stop Switch is not
within reach from that level a second Emergency Stop Switch should be installed and accessible
from that level.

On some occasions elevators utilize multi-level pits. When this occurs an accessible pit
Emergency Stop Switch must be installed at each level.

It is imperative that the mechanic has access to an Emergency Stop Switch where work activities
are required to be carried out.
