Lift and Technical Control

2404 elevator accidents were reported between 2008 and 2011 in Europe, 43 of which were fatal, according to ELA. Elevator and escalator inspections points out potential dangers and greatly reduces risk of accidents, thus, help saving lives. These dangers and accidents are caused not only by installation flaws, but also by maintenance inadequacy or simply wear off of materials. Regardless of the cause, inspections help uncover such threats and improve public safety.

In 2014, a new Elevator Directive, 2014/33/AB has been published and came into effect. Also, in 2017, two new standards, EN 81-20 and EN 81-50 will come into force. These new standards will reorganize the building methods of elevators and brings about new security measures.

Safety requires regular maintenance according to manufacturer's instructions and that annual inspections are carried out. Inspection is more than just complying with legislation and regulations. It is a question of your business, your employees and your customers' security. It is also about operating economically, not being hit by costly downtime because of damage not detected in time.

Inspections yield substantial data that can be used to ensure safety and increase the life span of a lift or escalator. The results serve as a valuable input for your maintenance systems and provide early warnings of future problems so you can avoid costs or, at worst, an emergency breakdown.
