Elevator Mechanic - Making Sure the Elevator Complies with the Code
Elevator Mechanic - Making Sure the Elevator Complies with the Code
May 20, 2016

Imagine a Monday at the office building that has an elevator being decommissioned. It means that everyone will have to use the stairs to reach even the top floors which, in some cases, is an impossible feat and can definitely stall a company’s productivity. Interruption of elevator service can easily be avoided, however, if there is an elevator mechanic on a contracted (rather than per-need) basis who can make sure that the elevators are always functioning. Elevator mechanics specialize in regular preventative maintenance and can ensure that inefficiency risks are avoided.

The Importance of elevator maintenance

Elevator maintenance needs to be carried out on a regular basis to guarantee safety and efficiency. Building managers prefer to outsource maintenance to professional elevator mechanics who can accurately assess and prevent any future issues. Toronto elevator mechanics have to be knowledgeable about the city’s codes and make sure that the elevator complies with municipal and national standards. Maintenance programs can also be carried out to ensure uninterrupted operation and a longer lifespan for the elevator. Safety is of paramount importance, and regular maintenance will prevent any unfortunate incidents from occurring. Building maintenance is not usually trained in elevator technicalities, so a skilled elevator mechanic is recommended to handle the maintenance program.

Complying with code requirements

Elevator maintenance program must comply with safety provisions of ASME’s Safety Code for Elevators and Escalators. The maintenance program must include examinations, maintenance and equipment tests at regular intervals. This means that elevator mechanic in any Toronto building cannot wait for the elevator to stop working; rather, he/she must handle maintenance on a regular basis to ensure proper function. Maintenance activities are based on several factors, including equipment age, condition and accumulated wear. It is critical for the elevator mechanic to know equipment age and condition in order to design a proper maintenance program. Maintenance work must always be scheduled without any disruption to the normal routine of tenants. Proper notice must always be provided so that tenants can adjust their time to accommodate the inconvenience.

Good to know. You know where I can find their updated manual?

ASME is applicable to Canada as well?
