Building Owner OH&S Obligations
The Owner of a premise has a legal duty under common law to exercise reasonable care for the safety and protection of employees and building visitors. If an Owner fails to observe those duties, which results in injury to a person, the owner can be held liable for injuries caused.

What actions should building owners be taking to manage their lifts?
The Australian Elevator Association (AEA) has published the Australian Elevator Association Handbook – Lifts and Escalators 2015, an Owners Handbook to assist owners to understand and manage their responsibilities.

Octagon can assist owners through specialist advice, planning, support, and the undertaking of remedial actions required to improve the safety of elevator and escalator equipment in their building.

For a copy of the AEA Handbook or a comprehensive OH&S assessment of your lifts, please contact an Octagon Technical Sales Consultant
