Passenger Lift Malaysia | Lift Elevator Maintenance
Installation of Lift Car Door Locking Device & EBOPS

We advise that a safety directive issued by Jabatan Keselamatan Dan Kesihatan Pekerjaan (JPKK) – DOSH which states that all passenger lifts must now be fitted with the following:

1. Car Door Locking Device
The device will prevent the car doors from being forced open from the inside when the car is between floors. This will prevent trapped passengers from exposing themselves to the danger of falling down the lift shaft or getting crushed when trying to escape.

2. Emergency Battery Operated Power Supply (EBOPS)
This is to keep the lights and fan running for a minimum of 2 hours in the event of a power failure thus reducing the anxiety and distress of trapped passengers.

A copy of the DOSH circular is available to download here: DOSH Circular JKPP IS 127/8/1 -Klt.23 (20)
