Canadian elevators are overhauled every month

  There are very few elevator safety accidents in Canada, which is inseparable from the Canadian government’s emphasis on elevator safety. From the maintenance date of elevators, the installation of maintenance personnel to the popularization of elevator safety education, Canada can be said to be at the forefront of the world.
  It is reported that in order to improve the safety of elevators, as early as 1997, the Canadian government had established the elevator technical standards and safety certification organization (TSSA) to conduct safety inspections on elevators across Canada. After that, TSSA worked out a new security inspection schedule to conduct regular inspections on three types of elevators: rolling elevators were inspected at least once a month, van elevators were inspected at least once every two months, and industrial elevators were inspected at least once every six months. Times. In some densely populated areas such as large shopping malls and subway stations, TSSA will also increase the number of inspections and repairs as appropriate. During each inspection, TSSA staff not only overhaul and maintain various elevator equipment, but also conduct safety training for engineers, cleaning staff, property managers, etc. who are responsible for the daily work of the elevator, and introduce various elevator operations in detail Regulations and emergency handling methods, etc. Every time the elevator is overhauled, TSSA will not only set up fences around the elevator, but also send two staff members to stand guard around the elevator to remind passers-by to detour. When overhauling van elevators, TSSA will also post an overhaul notice on each floor one week in advance to inform the overhaul date and expected duration. When it is overhauled, an obstacle sign with “overhaul” will be set up in front of the elevator on each floor.
  In addition to regular maintenance of stairs, the Canadian government has deeply rooted elevator safety education in the hearts of every resident. To this end, Canada established a non-profit organization called the “Elevator Escalator Safety Foundation” (EESF). The organization’s funding mainly comes from major escalator companies in Canada. It publishes new elevator safety guidelines and other publicity every year Materials are distributed free of charge to communities, primary and secondary schools and other places across the country.
  In recent years, EESF has also launched an education project called “Safe Elevator Passengers”, which specifically promotes 11 rules for safe elevator rides to elementary school students aged 8-10, including:
  Seven rules of escalators: (1) Be quick and careful when going up and down the escalator; (2) Do not push the stroller up the escalator; (3) Be sure to hold the handrails of the escalator; (4) Check that the clothes and shoe straps are not too long or Too loose; (5) Hold the adult’s hand; (6) Do not touch the sides of the escalator; (7) Stand quietly on the escalator with your face forward.
  And, the 4 rules of van elevator: (1) See your feet clearly when entering and exiting the elevator; (2) If the elevator stops but the door does not open, press the emergency button and wait quietly; (3) Don’t block when the elevator door is closed; ( 4) If you encounter a fire, you must use the stairs.
  EESF also produced an 8-minute video to show these 11 items in the form of songs and animations for children to remember.
