Avoid using faulty lift,
02/01/2007 The Star
RESIDENTS of Block 352 of the Macallum Street Ghaut flats in Penang have
been urged not to use one of the two lifts in the 21-storey block.
Pengkalan Kota assemblyman Lee Hack Teik said some of the lift's parts had
been found to be worn out during a spot check by the Department of
Occupational Safety and Health (DOSH) on Dec 15.
He said the department had given the flat's management corporation until Jan
16 to repair the lift.
“The management corporation is presently negotiating with the company that
installed the lift to get some parts replaced.
“The residents should use the other lift to avoid any untoward incident,” he
said when inspecting the lift on Saturday following complaints from a
resident who was confused after a notice was put up by the management
corporation on the door of the lift.
The notice warned residents that they are using the lift at their own risk
as some of its parts had been certified 'worn out' by DOSH.
A check showed that some residents did not heed the notice but continued to
use the lift.
