Safety Matters – When do Elevator Ropes Need Replacing?

In this episode of Safety Matters, ED/AD Regional Supervisor Rene Karavas demonstrates the conditions in which elevator hoist ropes require replacement.

Video highlights include:

  • Rope replacement due to loss of diameter
  • Rope replacement due to rouge and broken wires
  • Additional rope replacement conditions
  • Safety conditions when replacing ropes
