With the onset of Covid-19 came persistent questions and public concern as to whether, in a pandemic, elevators are safe to use. While information on this subject is currently widely available, now is a good moment to step back and review the topic of elevator safety in general. Although elevators are considered among the safest of all transportation modes, there can be accidents, operational failures and injuries. For building owners and managers, preventing injurious accidents in and around elevators is largely a matter of keeping your equipment properly monitored, maintained and updated. It is also helpful to guide tenants toward safe behaviors via direct communication.
