home elevator fatality

Elevator Radio Show 468 - Week 05/10/17

It’s a heavier show than last week as we lead with an article that reports an 8 year old was killed in a home elevator accident.  These accidents simply tear me up inside to no avail and as a father I can’t imagine ever having to go through the loss of one of your kids.  If you have a client who has a home elevator please share the information that’s provided on the EESF website with any client of yours.   I never want to read about an accident like this again.  In addition the second article talks about the inspections in San Francisco which I provide some additional questions I wish the media would ask.  It was nice to see Michael Fagan sharing his expertise which he did nicely on the segment.  More commentary will be included in the show today.

Elevator Radio Show 458 - Week 02/8/17



I wish I never had to cover another story again that involved a child being killed by a home elevator.  If you have a home elevator please click here for information on how to help ensure that it’s safe.  As a parent I can’t imagine living through anything like this and our hearts and prayers go out to the family. Next week The Elevator Escalator Safety Foundation meets in Mobile, AL for their Annual General Meeting and as a board hope to do everything possible to prevent accidents like this from happening in the future. No show next week as I’ll be attending the meeting.
