NEII’s Web site provides guidelines and information
to regular members about the most recent American Society of Mechanical
Engineers (ASME) safety codes and standards, accessibility standards
and much more. The public and members can access an interactive flash
presentation about recent changes made to the ASME Safety Code for
Elevators and Escalators, ASME A17.1, aimed to improve rider safety.
The presentation was developed as a tool to educate the industry
about compliance with the ASME A17.1, ADL-developed escalator step/skirt
performance index and related code changes, and includes information
on equipment upgrade options, such as skirt deflectors.
To better serve its members, NEII has created a password-protected, private communication forum known as NEII Talk. Allowing for easier and more efficient communication among members, users can log into the program to post messages, upload files and view committee reports.
