Lift Servicing

Lift servicing is a crucial aspect of ensuring the proper functioning, safety, and longevity of lift systems.

Remember that lift servicing is not only about fixing problems but also about preventive measures to ensure the ongoing reliability and safety of the elevator system. Regular maintenance can contribute to a longer lifespan for the lift and a safer experience for users.

Here are some key considerations and steps involved in lift servicing:

Establish a regular maintenance schedule based on the manufacturer’s recommendations and local regulations. Regular servicing helps identify and address issues before they become major problems.

Engage the services of a certified and experienced lift service provider. Ensure that they are familiar with the specific make and model of your lift and comply with relevant safety standards and regulations.

Conduct scheduled inspections to check for wear and tear, lubricate moving parts, and identify any potential issues. These inspections are essential for preventing breakdowns and ensuring the lift’s smooth operation.

Choose a service provider that offers emergency call-out services. This ensures that any unexpected issues or breakdowns can be addressed promptly to minimise downtime and inconvenience.

Ensure that lift servicing adheres to local safety regulations and standards. Regular inspections and maintenance help in compliance with these regulations and contribute to a safe operating environment.

Periodically conduct performance testing to assess the lift’s speed, leveling accuracy, and other operational parameters. This helps identify potential issues before they impact the lift’s performance.

Maintain comprehensive documentation of all servicing activities, inspections, and repairs. This documentation is not only essential for compliance but also aids in tracking the lift’s maintenance history.

If applicable, provide training to building staff on basic troubleshooting and safety protocols. This can help in identifying and reporting issues promptly.

Allocate a budget for repairs and potential upgrades. Regular servicing may identify the need for component replacements or modernisation to enhance safety and efficiency.

Keep building occupants informed about scheduled maintenance activities, especially if it may temporarily affect lift availability. Clear communication helps manage expectations and minimise disruptions.
