Despite being an accepted convenience in daily life, elevators can pose severe hazards.  When elevators are not properly inspected and repaired, it can result in catastrophic personal injury or death.  On average, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, there are 27 deaths each year due to elevator accidents.  Added to this are the numerous minor and major physical injuries that can result when elevators are not properly maintained.  Safe property owners and managers must perform regular maintenance and inspections in order to ensure deadly accidents do not occur.
