5 ways to maximise your building’s lifts   

If you are delegated with the responsibility for a building’s lifts or escalators, how can you maximise their lifespan and ensure their smooth running?

⇒  Maintenance – set up a good lift maintenance agreement for between three to five years to prolong the lifecycle of your equipment.

⇒  Survey your equipment – ask your maintenance provider to advise on improvements needed to help keep it running safely and reliably.

⇒  Technology – explore the advantages and benefits that remote monitoring can deliver.

⇒  Training – ensure your staff make essential daily checks of the equipment to help it to run effectively and safely. Train your key personnel to allow them to manage your lift and escalator assets effectively.

Thorough examination – have your equipment thoroughly examined every six months as an essential check on safety.  This is different from maintenance, but the reports give feedback so is useful for monitoring maintenance.

FMs are invited to attend LIFTEX 2019, the UK’s leading lift and escalator event for free advice and guidance. 15 – 16 May 2019, ExCeL, London.
