In Ireland, there’s a large number of lifts & escalators that were fitted many years ago, a lot of which do not meet current safety requirements. The owner of the equipment can be exposed to excessive claims should there be an accident or incident on these units
Newer units might also not comply for a number of different reasons and the defence of ‘’I did not know’’ will not get you very far.
We at SEEC can do a full risk assessment on your equipment based on current standards in the lift industry and your legal obligation to comply with the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act.
The result of this risk assessment will identify all risks and recommendations will be made to address the necessary items.
