Safety Checks

As building owners and property managers there are ways that you can assist to improve the everyday lift safety for the people who regularly visit, work or live in your building.

Simple lift inspections like regularly checking levelling accuracy, general housekeeping and maintaining third party telephone lines all work together in reducing risk between your regular scheduled service visits.

The European Lift and Escalator Industry Association provide a 74 point lift safety checklist to assist owners and property managers in:

  • fulfilling mutual obligation for safety and comfort,
  • providing a better quality of service from your installation,
  • extending the life of your equipment.

This guide can be a useful tool and adapted to suit the Australian AS1735 Lift Code, allowing for integration into you’re OH&S procedures for your scheduled building Safety Checklists.

Mocon can undertake a risk assessment of your lift installation and provide an independent external auditor to advise you on any safety and legislative matters that you should be aware of, working with you to bring your lift up to compliance and tailoring individual maintenance programs to meet the individual technical specifications of usage and equipment.

One of Mocon’s main objectives is to improve the safety for all those who use and work on lifts.
