Elevator preventive maintenance personnel will first look into the doors of the lift and the smoothness in which it opens and closes. The maintenance of the interior of the personnel lifts will also be monitored by the preventive maintenance personnel. It is necessary for the elevator to have an emergency phone line that has access to 911 operators. The machine room of the elevator will also be thoroughly checked by the elevator preventive maintenance personnel. The head room space, lights inside the machine room, the control panel and the emergency stop switch etc will all be closely checked by the personnel.
