This paper will deal with the many aspects of safety to be considered in current design of elevators and also how technicians may need to be trained to inspect and or service both old and new equipment. Changes in technology, metrication and the approaches to skill training could bring about unsafe practices. In today’s competitive market service contracts are often changing from the original installing company to competitors, this can increase the risk of accidents unless suitable training is carried out and correct replacement parts are available to ensure the continued safety of both service mechanic and the public.
