Suzhou is a big city for elevator use, with 174000 elevators in use and one of the largest elevator manufacturing bases in China.
In 2020, the output of elevators is about 230000, accounting for about one quarter of the national output.
The safety of elevator use is the focus of special attention.
The Suzhou elevator safety regulations has been officially implemented since January 1, 2022! What are the highlights? Let’s have a look! The maximum penalty for electric bicycle entering the passenger elevator is 1000 yuan! Uncivilized elevator behavior will lead to elevator failure.
In particular, the safety accidents caused by electric bicycles entering the elevator car are shocking.
Article 24 of the regulations comprehensively regulates the safe and civilized use of elevators by passengers and employees, and lists ten contents that elevator passengers and employees shall not violate, including using elevators beyond the rated load capacity of elevators, forcibly opening or blocking the closing of elevator doors, etc.
It is worth mentioning that it is clearly mentioned that electric bicycles or their batteries shall not be brought into the passenger elevator.
The provisions also specify the provisions of elevator users and other passengers and employers on dissuading and reporting passengers’ violations.
In addition, Article 43 of the regulations sets corresponding penalties for those who bring electric bicycles or their batteries into the passenger elevator and refuse to listen to the dissuasion, “the fire rescue organization shall impose a fine of not less than 200 yuan but not more than 1000 yuan; if a crime is constituted, they shall be investigated for criminal responsibility according to law; if they cause personal and property damage to others, they shall be liable for compensation according to law.” The elevator warranty period is extended to five years.
According to the practice of the elevator industry, the elevator factory provides a two-year warranty period.
However, most of the new residential projects are high-rise and small high-rise, and most of them are delivered after fine decoration.
It takes several years from the commencement of construction to the owner’s occupancy, which is prone to the phenomenon of “new house and old ladder”.
In view of this situation, Article 16 of the Regulations stipulates a five-year warranty period and specifies that no fees shall be charged for providing repair services involving elevator quality problems within the warranty period.
The five-year warranty for newly installed elevators refers to the warranty period from the date when the elevator installation supervision and inspection are qualified.
If the main parts of the elevator are damaged due to quality problems, the elevator manufacturing unit or sales unit shall provide repair services free of charge.
It should be emphasized that the five-year warranty does not include daily maintenance, and the daily maintenance cost shall be determined by the manufacturer and the elevator user through negotiation.
The implementation of elevator liability insurance has become the focus of public attention.
In order to ensure the safe operation of elevators, the regulations start from the source control.
Article 10 stipulates the selection and configuration of elevators in Suzhou, and Article 7 stipulates to strengthen the application of information technologies such as the Internet of things, improve the safety performance and management level of elevators, and enhance the ability of accident prevention and emergency rescue.
At the same time, Article 8 of the regulations proposes to implement elevator liability insurance.
According to Suzhou market supervision and Administration Bureau, according to the requirements of the regulations, specific implementation rules will be issued in due time, including Suzhou elevator selection and configuration standards, elevator safety liability insurance, interpretation of the five-year warranty period of newly installed elevators, construction of elevator safety public service platform, etc.
According to the preliminary plan, 60000 elevator liability insurance will be promoted in the city in 2022, 120000 elevator liability insurance will be promoted in 2023 and 180000 elevator liability insurance will be promoted in 2024.
It is planned to give certain financial subsidies to relevant units that purchase elevator liability insurance, so as to better promote elevator liability insurance.
Elevators are an indispensable part of our daily life.
