Is Your Elevator Safe and Up To Code?
Received an elevator jack replacement notice from the New Hampshire Department of Labor? If so, your elevator is considered by the state to be a potential safety hazard.
In adherence with code, the original advisory notice in 2002 addressed single bottom cylinder/hydraulic elevators built prior to 1972, more than 40 years ago, under the pretext that such cylinders are subject to corrosion, rapid loss of oil, and possible uncontrolled descent of the car.
Early in 2014, the Department of Labor sent follow up notices, stating:
Please update this Department as to whether or not the hydraulic cylinder/jack assemblies have been replaced on your elevator…if the work was not done, be advised, this is a potential safety hazard. It is this Department’s position that the hydraulic cylinder assemblies should be scheduled for replacement as soon as possible.
