Elevator inspection

Elevator inspection, also known as elevator safety technical inspection, is the process of checking and evaluating the technical condition of equipment based on current standards and regulations to ensure safety during use. use.

In the field of elevator safety inspection, people divide elevators into the following categories:

  • Electric elevator inspection
  • Hydraulic elevator
  • Cargo elevator inspection
  • Electric elevator without machine room

Why inspect the elevator?

Elevator inspection to ensure safety during operation. Besides ensuring the safety of workers, safety inspection also has the following benefits:

  • Increase labor productivity due to uninterrupted equipment working time
  • Reduce compensation costs caused by occupational accidents

When should you conduct an elevator inspection?

According to current regulations, when using elevators, it is necessary to perform 3 forms of inspection as follows:

  • First time elevator inspection: it is mandatory to carry out an elevator inspection when the installation is completed, to ensure that the elevator meets the best conditions, and it is safe to go into operation and use according to the regulations. to be promulgated.
  • Periodic inspection of elevators: according to regulations, elevators need to go through the inspection process after the first inspection, periodically inspect the elevator. In this case, if the elevator has some damaged or unsafe equipment, it needs to be replaced or repaired to meet the requirements to be allowed to use.
  • Abnormal inspection: this work will be done if in the process of using some technical problems occur, causing unsafe conditions, not being eligible to continue operating, replacing and repairing. major repair without expiry of the inspection period. The inspection unit will assess the situation and propose a remedial plan in the shortest time according to the prescribed standards.

Is there a penalty for not inspecting the elevator?

  • The level of distribution is from 1,000,000 to 3,000,000 in case individuals or organizations use the elevator without reporting to the competent authority on the inspection of machinery, materials and equipment with strict requirements. strict about occupational safety.
  • A fine of from 3,000,000 to 5,000,000 if the elevator is put into use but fails to declare or arbitrarily put into use.
  • A fine ranging from 50,000,000 to 70,000,000 in case of deliberately putting the elevator into use when the inspection results are unsatisfactory.

Conditions for elevator inspection:

It is necessary to ensure the following 4 conditions before conducting elevator inspection:

  • It is necessary to ensure that the elevator is in a state of readiness for inspection.
  • Prepare full technical documents before inspecting the elevator.
  • Weather and environmental factors must be most favorable so as not to affect the test results.

The process of determining the elevator according to the latest standards today:


The inspection unit will carry out the inspection process according to the following steps:

  • Conduct background checks and use records of elevators, escalators, and human conveyors
  • External technical inspection.
  • Test in case of no load.
  • Test lifts under load with different methods.

Only carry out the elevator inspection for the next time if the previous inspection results are satisfactory as prescribed and the information has been fully saved.

The elevator safety inspection process can be done in the following sequence of steps

Step 1: Check the technical file

The following records should be reviewed by the auditor:

  • Manufacturing profile, elevator history. Structural drawings and working principle drawings
  • Documentation of installation and completion.
  • Minutes and results of the previous inspection
  • Records of replacement and repair. Operation and maintenance log
  • Operation and Troubleshooting Manual

Step 2: Technical check

  • Review completeness and synchronization of details, sets with manufacturing records
  • Check for defects, deformation of cabin details and parts, like ladders, pits, pulley doors, cables, counterweights ...)
  • Hydraulic system test (for hydraulic lifts)
  • Measure ground resistance

Step 3: Experiment

The testing process is only performed when the above test steps have satisfactory results.
