old elevators

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.
