Elevator Malaysia | SAFETY PROCEDURE FOR MANTRAP RESCUE OPERATION

SAFETY PROCEDURE FOR MANTRAP RESCUE OPERATION
CONDUCTED BY AUTHORIZED PERSON http://www.elevatormalaysia.blogspot.com
This operation shall be carried out by AUTHORIZED PERSONS only. Any accident or damage resulted from carrying out such an operation by unauthorized persons shall not be the owner’s or contractor’s responsibility.
An AUTHORIZED PERSON means that he has been trained by lift supplier and his name and his identity card may be required to be registered to the local authority having jurisdiction on the legal operation of the elevator concerned.
WORK PROCEDURE
1. The AUTHORIZED PERSON should communicate with the person or persons who are trapped inside the lift car. Find out how many persons are inside and instruct them to remain calm and stay away from the car door.

2. Turn off the electric supply at the main switchboard in the machine room to the elevator where the persons are trapped inside the elevator car. (there are two common type of main switch board shown as below)

3. In example case above, lift No. 2 is the lift that has broken down. Turn off the isolator/switchboard for lift No. 2 only.
4. Proceed with the rescue operation by opening the landing door with the landing door key at the floor where elevator cage has stopped.

5. If the elevator car is located at a level of more than ± 600mm to the nearest landing floor, then don’t release the passenger. Rescue works should be carried out by a lift technician as there is the danger that such rescue works may result in the risk of a fatal accident of the trapped passengers falling back into the lift shaft. If the elevator car is not level to safely bring the passengers out then sometimes it is advised to open the door approximately only about 200mm to allow fresh air or light into lift car to make the passengers feel more comfortable while waiting for the lift technician to arrive. The lift technician is trained to manually bring the lift to the nearest landing floor level by slowly releasing the brake at the traction machine in the lift motor room. [NOTE: THIS IS OPERATION MUST ONLY BE DONE BY TRAINED LIFT TECHNICIAN]

Note: If the elevator car is located at a level of more than ± 600mm to the nearest landing floor, don’t release the passenger. Rescue works should be carried out by lift technician.

SOMETIMES A FATAL ACCIDENT CAN OCCUR WHEN PASSENGERS CAME OUT BY THEMSELVES AND FALL BACK INTO LIFT SHAFT

10 Tips Children Escalator Safety

There is more to protecting children from injuries on escalators than just holding their hands.

In the U.S., escalator-related accidents account for more than 11,000 visits to hospital emergency rooms annually, with an unknown number of injuries treated elsewhere, says the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). A disproportionate number of injuries occur in children and often involve fingers, toes and feet, some resulting in permanent impairment.

Here is what you should know:

1. Use elevators when possible. The risk of children having accidents on escalators increases when parents or other caretakers are accompanied by more than one child, carry packages, wheel strollers or carts, hold pets on leashes and, for some adults, wear bifocals. In a multi-year study of 13,000 child-related injuries on escalators 723 involved strollers; in most cases a child fell out of the stroller. Adults should be able to keep one of their hands on the handrail and hold a young child’s hand with the other; otherwise they should take an elevator.

Elevators are usually located near escalators, though often out of sight. Look for signs or ask.

2. Lift toddlers on and off. Even many four-year-olds lack the developmental skills to coordinate stepping on and off a moving platform at the right moment. They usually jump, making it difficult to maintain their balance and to control their forward motion. They are unaware that landing on the crack where steps will appear can result in their falling. And they often let their feet slide off the escalator.

3. Step over the “combs” when getting on and off. The combs are the teeth-like projections where the steps emerge and disappear, forming a gap where toes and feet may become entrapped.

4. Stand in the middle of the steps. There is also a narrow space between the steps and the sides of the escalator where shoelaces, pants bottoms, scarves, drawstrings, and long skirts can become entangled.

5. Flexible plastic shoes pose unique hazards. The CPSC reports numerous cases of Crocs and Crocs-like shoes causing accidents. Children sometimes slide these shoes along the sides of the escalator. This causes friction and further softens the plastic, increasing the risk of such shoes becoming wedged into spaces.

6. Look around before getting on. Children can be distracting. Adults have absentmindedly stepped on escalators coming toward them. (Older children do it on purpose.) This causes falls. Leave several steps empty before getting on. Emergency shutoff buttons are usually located only at the top and bottom of the escalator, generally on the right as you enter.

7. Keep a close eye on children. The risk of injury increases when children misbehave, sit down on the steps, face backwards, or pick up objects that they have dropped. Placing hands on the escalator steps is especially dangerous near the end of the ride. Fingers can become caught in the combs.

8. Never loiter after stepping off. Walk away from the escalator, then stop to get your bearings. People may be right behind you. Children have been injured when adults or luggage fell on them.

9. Airport escalators may be especially hazardous. Busy airports report dozens of serious escalator-related accidents a year — and very rarely, a death. Risk factors include large carts, heavy luggage, and perhaps, passenger fatigue, and lack of familiar surroundings. Signs banning luggage carts on escalators are sometimes ignored; some airports have installed physical barriers. Large and heavy luggage is treacherous; it may not fit on a step and can go tumbling onto riders below.

10. Stay alert on moving walkways, too. While such walkways are safer than escalators, they also have spaces along the sides and combs at the end. Many people become distracted, especially on long walkways, and forget that they are on conveyances that require stepping off. Many walkways are equipped with voice warnings, flashing lights and palpable “bumps” to help keep riders alert.

I studied Building Services Engineering at London South Bank University.  After graduation, I worked in many positions in Engineering.  I want to raise awareness for the safety of elevator passengers.  Recently, three people died in separate elevator accidents in Japan.
