Periodic Control and Inspection of Construction Elevator and Facade Elevator

The use of building facade platforms, especially construction elevators, has gradually increased in parallel with the development of the construction sector. However, with this increase, there is an increase in occupational accidents caused by these equipments.

The construction elevators can be installed on the facades as well as in the building. Construction elevators and façade elevators, which can be easily dismantled and installed, are added to the elevator system as the construction of the building rises. Construction elevators are used not only in building construction, but also in dam constructions, viaducts, cement chimneys and many other places.

In general, the biggest hazards in construction elevators are the fall of the elevator, the bending or breaking of the columns, storms or strong winds and power cuts. According to the Occupational Safety Law, employers must ensure the health and safety of their employees. According to the Regulation on Health and Safety in the Use of Work Equipment, employers are obliged to ensure that the machines and work equipment to be used in the workplace are suitable for the work to be performed and to take the necessary measures to ensure that they do not harm the employees in terms of health and safety.

Work equipment must have braking systems. If necessary, emergency braking systems should also be provided which will automatically be activated or easily accessible in case of failure of these systems.

In addition to these safety systems, construction elevators and facade elevators are listed among the lifting and forwarding machines in the Regulation on Health and Safety in the Use of Work Equipment and must be inspected and inspected at least once a year.

Construction elevators are among the most important equipment in terms of increasing the performance of the employees and reducing the construction costs, but it is a legal obligation to have regular inspections for the safety and security of the employees.
