Safe Habits for Passenger Elevator


Passenger elevator are essential in helping individuals with mobility impairments meet their many transportation needs. It is important to understand that several potential hazards can exist when operating this type of complex equipment. Avoiding injury and preventing possible damage can be accomplished by considering these potential hazards, and practicing safe habits whenever operating passenger elevator.

In the operation of a elevator, securing the vehicle is one of the first steps to ensuring safety. It is vital that the vehicle is in park and that the parking brake is applied. The parking break should be inspected regularly to ensure that it is working properly, also. Failure to follow this important step could result in the vehicle moving and causing injury or damage.

The vehicle should be parked on level ground before deploying passenger elevator. Especially in the use of platform elevator, this can prevent the mobility device from rolling needlessly on the elevator. Roll stop devices should also be employed to prevent the potential for a mobility device to roll off of the elevator. This type of occurrence could cause serious injury if it happened while the individual was on the mobility device. It could also cause catastrophic damage to a wheelchair or mobility scooter.

These elevator have weight restrictions. Swivel elevator are typically designed for lighter mobility devices and the larger platform elevator are able to elevator more excessive weights. If the weight limit of the elevator is exceeded, there could be damaged caused to the elevator and the potential dumping of the mobility device. Obviously, this too could be catastrophic.

Many elevator require a certain amount of space in order to deploy properly. Special care should be taken during operation. Ample space should be available to prevent the device from impacting other vehicles, and more importantly, nearby people. Most handicap parking spaces provide enough space to properly deploy the device.

Many governmental regulations require that a backup system be available in the event of equipment failure. Ensuring that passenger elevator have a backup system or manual operations capability can provide another option for safe usage in the event of a malfunction.

These safety habits can go a long ways in protecting the Passenger Elevator, user, and any nearby people. It can also prevent needless damage to the wheelchair elevator and any nearby vehicles or other types of property. Learning and maintaining safe operating conditions is necessary to properly use passenger elevator, and to maximize the assistance provided by these great mobility enhancing devices.
