Elevator Hazards

Toronto Condo News
Publication date:

Article Summary: 

Single-speed elevators date back to the 1950s and are more likely to stop a few inches above or below floor level when the brake is activated, creating a trip-and-fall hazard. Modernization to eliminate this hazard is expensive and takes an elevator out of service for up to two months. TSSA regulates 1,200 single-speed elevators in Ontario and 50% have been modernized.
