Easy Tips To Maintain An Elevator Checklist
News reports of the last several months citing elevator accidents have prompted me to come out with some useful guidelines or precautionary measures for the elevator users in general and society office bearers in particular. During the last eight months, from January 2023 till August 2023, there were 28 fatal accidents throughout the country, in which 23 deaths and 34 serious injuries were reported.
If you are an office bearer of any society or an owner of any premises having an elevator, you must read and follow this carefully to avoid the hassles which you may have to deal with in case of an accident in your building elevator. With fatal accidents, it becomes a police case and one has to go through complete police enquiries and investigations.
In case if the matter goes to court, then the society committee members need to attend the court also. They may not be at fault but they will be under psychological pressure till the matter ends or concludes. If you are well aware of rules and have kept proper records of your elevators, you can save yourselves from unnecessary complications.
In case of any fatal accident, please take the following measures:
1) Close the elevator in ‘as-is’ condition.
2) Take photographs of the accident site.
3) Barricade the floor area where the accident took place.
