Home Lift Safety

A home lift is quite a large device. With heavy machinery, it’s important that the rules are followed. We recommend that you familiarise yourself with the emergency features to be prepared. Also, if there are younger children that may have access to the lift, it’s important to discuss the correct way of using mobility equipment. Any playing around or jumping in the elevator may cause problems. To ensure their safety, make sure they are supervised.

Regular Maintenance Is Important

To use mobility equipment safely, they must be in good working condition. To ensure everything is up to standard, get regular inspections. These can help flag up and fix any problems that may occur. To keep you or a loved one safe, make sure regular maintenance is carried out as per the product recommendations. Check out our blog on stairlift maintenance to find out more.
