Train Staff on How to Respond When Passenger-Filled Elevator Breaks Down
If your site has an elevator, it’s important that your staff know the proper steps to take when a passenger-filled elevator breaks down. Elevators can and do malfunction, more often than most people may like to think, sometimes resulting in injuries. An owner is subject to premises liability law, meaning the owner can be held responsible for certain injuries suffered by persons on the premises, including injuries sustained while using an elevator. If your staff doesn’t take the proper steps and passengers get injured during an elevator breakdown, you are likely to get sued.
