Lift emergency calls
& rescue of trapped persons
Trapped in the lift – the horror scenario for users.
When you use a lift, you should always be aware that there is a lift emergency call function that you can use to request help in an emergency. This emergency call function is usually a button or key in the lift that connects you to an emergency call centre. The emergency call centre can then organise help should you get stuck in the lift or experience other problems.
For lift operators it is important that a functioning 2-way communication system, i.e. an appropriate emergency call device or emergency call telephone with a reliable connection to an emergency call centre, is installed in every lift for transporting passengers.
A lift without a functional emergency call system must not be operated.
To ensure the safety of users and also not to face the risk of legal consequences, you should therefore commission a reliable partner with an emergency call centre that is staffed 24/7. The organisation of rescuing persons must also be reliably ensured at all times – we take care of this nationwide via qualified partners who have been instructed about your lift.
