elevator slumlords

Elevator Radio Show 504 – Week 5/9/2018


On today’s program I get to get to share an experience I had regarding an elevator from 1934, an accident and the problem with building/elevator owners who simply won’t invest in there elevators. So what’s the moral of the story? When you’re a cheap ass slumlord with no intention of investing in your buildings there’s a good chance someone is going to get hurt or worse lose their life.  As contractors, inspectors, consultants and manufacturers we all need to take steps to make sure these people understand the ramifications of not maintaining, repairing and/or upgrading their elevators could lead too which is injury or worse.

On top of the elevator news videos I’ve been putting out online, I’ve got another week full with commentary and articles. Plus I get to get up on my soap box today regarding a couple of articles that are in the show notes. Special thanks to NAESA International and James Runyan for allowing me permission to reprint his article.  Another great article comes from San Francisco where an elevator company says enough is enough to an alleged slum lord who refuses to make the necessary steps to make sure his elevators are safe. Now that's what I call being an elevator advocate!

Special thanks to the companies who have donated goodies to the prize pack giveaway!
