What Kinds of Issues Can Elevators Have That Cause Injury?

  • Sudden or rough stops
  • Doors closing forcefully and unexpectedly
  • Overcrowding and exceeding weight limitations
  • Worn out sheaves/pulleys, causing uneven pressure and lag

  • Electrical and power supply issues, power failures
  • Improper alignment
