Introduction to Residential Elevator Safety

The Accessibility Equipment Manufacturers Association (AEMA) and Motion Specialties have produced this safety awareness booklet to ensure that you enjoy your elevator safely.

Safety of design and operation is inherent in each personal or residential elevator. All AEMA members adhere to a strict code of ethics concerning the design, manufacture, installation and code compliance of every elevator they produce and install .....including your elevator!

Good engineering practices plus adherence to the published National Codes and Standards ensure your elevator is suited to your needs and, most importantly, your family’s safety!

These National Codes and Standards also reference requirements for a safe installation by providing information on the maximum safe running clearances, strength of walls and fastenings and certification of installing and servicing technicians through a National Training program. You can be assured that a lot of people have dedicated a lot of time and a lot of money to ensure that your elevator, when delivered and installed, will be turned over to you in pristine condition.

For continuing safe operation of your personal elevator, please read and understand the contents of this booklet, in conjunction with any informa- tion provided by the manufacturer and/or installer. It is intended to make you aware of the potential hazards that may occur when the elevator is not operated in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions and the safety awareness items outlined in this document.

What our Clients are Saying

open quotesI think we often go through each work day just doing what we are supposed to do – without acknowledging the things that make our life easier and better. Dana, you make my work life easier and better! Thank you for all the work yesterday with both of those moulds. You took the lead with the actual moulding and again with the dispensing. Both girls looked 100% better in their new systems, and everyone seemed happy. Thanks for being so good at what you do!close quotes
