Elevator Machine Safeguarding

Adding machine safeguarding to your elevator machine room is a simple way to prevent injuries sustained during maintenance, repair, etc. Common injuries can include crushed hands and arms, severed fingers and limbs, lacerations and abrasions - the list of machinery-related injuries is long and horrifying.

Safeguards are essential for protecting workers from needless and preventable injuries. Also, is will help keep you in compliance with Osha and State regulations. A good rule to remember is: any machine part, function, or process that may cause injury must be safeguarded.

Effective machine safeguarding should:

- Prevent employee contact with the hazard area during machine operation.
- Avoid creating additional hazards.
- Be secure, tamper-resistant, and durable.
- Avoid interfering with normal operation of the machine.
- Allow for safe lubrication and maintenance.

Two types of compliant safeguarding can be employed to achieve these goals. (1) Global guarding can block an entire area from entry, and enclose all hazards within that area. (2) -
Component guarding places individual covers and guards on hazardous machine parts.

Machine safeguarding must also be supplemented by an effective energy control (lockout/tagout) program that ensures that employees are protected from hazardous energy sources during machine servicing and maintenance work activities.

Call Elevator Control Service today to learn more about elevator machine safety and guarding.

Going Green: Environmentally Friendly Elevator Services

Government and communities are reacting to climate change. This continues to permeate in the media, and society is building upon businesses to adopt sustainable strategies to reduce the carbon footprints of buildings and facilities. Green building design has grown from the very selective to a major industry in products and services.

It is in every businessโ€™s financial and social interests to operate from a sustainable building. Green building and efficient offices use 50%-85% less energy than older outdated facilities. Besides the operational benefits of upgrading your elevator ... long term, a business can reduce costs by up to 10-20%. Your business or building can contribute to the new โ€œgreen-worldโ€ with a more sustainable lift system.

1. Elevator Control Service maintains modern eco-friendly lifts

Elevator Control Service services and installs eco-friendly elevator systems from a variety of manufacturers and companies. Our goal is to provide you with the most current and up-to-date green solutions for your building or facility. Modern eco-friendly elevator systems offer efficiency and quality service.

Eco-friendly elevator systems do not use hydraulic oil, instead they use a more sustainable belt drive traction system. Hydraulic lifts rely on a large tank filled with oil, which, given that it needs to be changed at regular intervals, is particularly harmful for the environment. Furthermore, with hydraulic systems there is an ever present threat of leakage due to worn out gaskets and couplings.

2. Going green makes dollars and sense

Building and facility owners can save long term on newer eco-friendly systems with energy savings. Often local, county, state and federal tax credits and rebates are available to owners that invest in newer more energy efficient systems.

Maintenance costs are usually also lower than those of hydraulic lift solutions. Oil no longer needs to be replaced, nor do leaking gaskets or deteriorating couplings, and the electric drive means the intermittent replacement of hydraulic hoses and carrier cables is no longer an issue.

3. Using and making power

Much like a hybrid vehicle, we can utilize the โ€œbraking" or lowering of the elevator as a method of producing energy. The previous โ€œlostโ€ energy can now be utilized in powering the eco-friendly lift system. The graphic above can show you how modern and eco-friendly elevators can create and capture energy in daily operations.

4. Give us a call

Elevator Control Service can provide all levels of eco-friendly elevator installations and service. Our installation and service team works quickly with minimal interference to your building. We offer extensive maintenance programs for all buildings and facilities in the Baltimore/Washington, DC metro areas.

Elevator Control Service Preventive Maintenance Programs

Elevators have been essential features in office and residential buildings for more than 80 years. Vertical transportation systems are pervasive, yet they are routinely overlooked when building owners evaluate causes of workplace inefficiency, the marketability of a commercial property, strategies for retaining tenants, and options to increase leasing rates. Keeping up on preventive maintenance helps keep elevator costs down, including avoiding premature modification.

Building tenants expect speedy and reliable transportation to move them vertically throughout a structure. Regular, on-site preventive maintenance is essential in sustaining the performance and improving the lifespan of a building's elevator systems. Many times a licensed engineer is not dispatched to service a lift until there is a definite problem with the system and it is in desperate need of repairs. Without proper and routine maintenance, costly repairs will most likely be required, resulting in more frequent shutdowns of the elevator. Owners and property managers need to be diligent and persistent in holding their maintenance contractors to the terms detailed in maintenance contracts. The contracts typically require routine preventive maintenance through the use of log tracking of maintenance visits and require contractors to provide reports what detail callback frequency and provided repairs and routine maintenance. Building owners should be proactive with preventive maintenance systems so the building is not a liability or is no longer code compliant. Maintenance is almost always more cost effective than waiting until there is a problem.
