The frequent elevator accidents still stem from the dereliction of duty of the quality supervision department
Elevator accidents have been seen in many newspapers and magazines recently. The elevator utilization rate in big cities is very high, so it is a high incidence place of elevator accidents. Earlier, Beijing subway elevator accident, there were reports of casualties, and other cities have news about elevator safety every three or five times, which can't help worrying people. According to the data from AQSIQ, in 2010, the accident rate of 10000 elevators in China was 0.26, and the death toll of 10000 elevators was 0.17. For China, which already has 1.628 million elevators, elevator accidents seem very far away from users. However, in the past July, all localities have frequently performed "elevator horror events", and the safety of elevators has become a topic of endless discussion.
The same data from the quality supervision department: by the end of 2010, the total number of elevators in use in China had reached 1628000, ranking first in the world in terms of ownership and annual growth, and growing at a high speed of about 20% per year. This means that the number of new elevators is more than 300000 every year, accounting for more than half of the total number of new elevators in the world every year. Since 2005, there have been about 40 elevator accidents and about 30 deaths every year in China. The cold figure does not mean that the accident rate is low, but what enlightenment does this blood lesson give us?
First of all, ask the elevator manufacturer, has the elevator quality passed the customs? For elevator brands as well-known as Otis with a large number of customers, the same brand has frequent failures, which means that there are potential safety hazards. Why can't they be detected and rectified? Does the elevator industry have a product recall system to put the elevator passengers aside? For example, after the Beijing subway injury incident, after preliminary investigation, the direct cause of the accident is "the damage of fixed parts, the displacement of the escalator driving host, resulting in the falling off of the driving chain and the sliding of the escalator". In this case, Otis Elevator undoubtedly has design defects and should be re examined for relevant problems nationwide. The safety and quality problems of elevators are not talked about. They should be implemented from details, from design and manufacturing to putting into use, including seven links: production, sales, installation, use, maintenance, transformation and inspection. Once there is a problem in a certain link, it will affect elevator safety. Safety is the key to life.
Secondly, as the supervision department of elevator quality, have you done your duty? The function of responsibility cannot be pinned on the safety sweeping after each accident. A vigorous campaign law enforcement is difficult to play its due supervisory role in the elevator industry. Nowadays, the number of elevators is increasing year by year. If there is no long-term management and supervision mechanism, the safety factor will be greatly reduced. It is obviously useless to expect to curb more accidents through special inspection, or temporarily stop elevators of a certain brand and model. To take a step back, the elevator is unqualified. Has it passed the certified quality control? Why do some elevators dare to paste "inspection free products"? According to the general regulations, we should experience it once every 15 days. We should conduct random inspection and supervision on a daily basis. If problems are found, we should immediately let the elevator manufacturer and elevator user deal with them. Has the quality inspection department done any of these work? Is it done well?
Finally, in addition to charging property management fees, does the property management company attach great importance to the safety of elevators in accordance with the elevator use management and maintenance rules? Is there conscious routine maintenance? Of course, such responsibilities and obligations may not appear in the contract, but as a part of the property, we should take the initiative to bear some responsibilities and strengthen daily inspection. Only in this way can we eliminate the hidden dangers and prevent the elevator from "eating people".
The author believes that the most frequent elevator accidents are due to the dereliction of duty of the quality supervision department rather than the safety of the elevator. If supervision is in place, how can unqualified products be installed and used out of the factory? Some netizens suggested: "To truly curb the occurrence of elevator accidents, first of all, we must impose heavy penalties and huge claims on the responsible enterprises and units of each elevator accident, establish a poor elevator recall system, and even investigate the criminal responsibility of the responsible person; more importantly, we should establish a strict normal supervision mechanism, always keep the core of elevator safety, and don't let routine inspection and maintenance become a mere formality. Elevator safety has never been It is a part of public security. Not only should someone apologize and someone compensate, but also someone should be held accountable for endangering public security. "
The above measures must be supported by relevant departments, written into relevant laws and regulations, write the contents related to the safe use of elevators into the property contract and elevator use contract, clarify the relationship between rights and responsibilities, and prevent elevator accidents, so that the public can really get a sense of security.
