Lift & Elevator Inspections Pdf

In-Service Verification of Lifts

Ensuring safe operation of lifts & elevators

Lift & Elevator Challenge

Lifts or elevators are the most common means of transport in the world. 

Over the last few decades, safety at the design stage has been constantly improving. Older installations that have not been modernized may still present risks since they were built to follow design and safety standards that are now out-of-date. To minimize risk and comply with regulations, lift installations need to be checked regularly.

What are Lift & Elevator Inspection services?

Lift inspection involves a series of tests performed on your lift system

Bureau Veritas evaluates each installation according to its age, current state, file of maintenance, file of inspection and the risk inherent in its operation, based on the kind of device. 

These services cover a wide range of personnel handling devices such as elevators, escalators, ski lifts and cable cars.

FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions

  • Are lift inspections mandatory or voluntary?

    It depends on what regulations apply to you locally. There is every chance that a mandatory requirement sets an inspection framework in your country. 

    However even where regulations about lift inspection are not strict, it is highly recommended to periodically assess the state of your installations.

  • How can I manage my verification schedule, especially if it needs to cover a lot of sites?

    Managing complex scheduling is easy with BVnet, our Web-based reporting management tool. BVnet is designed for multi-site clients. Automatic reminders signal when inspections are due and alerts are triggered if a major risk is identified. On-line reports are delivered in a password-secure environment.
