Elevator Safety Code
Are Your Elevator Systems Up to ASME Standards?
Adhering to an elevator safety code in your Boston-based building, or facilities in other locations across Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Maine, not only ensures the safety of your passengers and elevator systems in general; many codes are actually required according to state law.
The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) has developed “eight major codes addressing safety in design, construction, installation, operation, inspections, testing, maintenance, alteration, and repair of elevators,” as well as other types of lifts, escalators, and moving walks. The ASME elevator safety codes were created to set a standard in the industry to minimize accident and injury, as well as costly downtime. Additionally, these standards seek to provide consistency in elevator construction and installation across North America.
As the elevator industry continues to evolve, modern technology evolves with it. With new, innovative elevator systems being developed every year, it is more important than ever that builders and elevator inspectors understand the ins and outs of a thorough, tested, and proven safety code. An elevator safety code they can rely on.
