In case of an accident with a marine elevator that you own, you could be held liable due to negligence. Your insurance company will not honour your claim for damages either.
The purposeful removal of safety lines by the crew to make a marine elevator operational again is a form of negligence. Hiring a service company with a questionable reputation is another; your insurer’s likely response will be: as an owner you should have known the risk.
We therefore strongly recommend you have all service work and annual inspections performed regularly, by a renowned company that can formally prove its quality of work.
The cost will not be much higher, so why take the risk?
An interesting fact regarding liability: there is no prerequisite or condition that you must have service or repair work performed by the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM). As long as the service company you use can formally prove its professionalism, you are 100% safe.
There are no clear standards for marine elevator service companies either; land-based elevator companies are required to comply with set standards and codes. At Mr. Marine Elevator we chose to follow land-based elevator rules.
To provide our customers with extra peace of mind, we have added some additional marine standards to the set requirements:
