LASG Encourages Compliance With Elevator Safety Standards

The Lagos State Ministry of Special Duties and Intergovernmental Relations, in collaboration with the Lagos State Safety Commission and the Lagos State Lifts and Vertical Transportation Association, has stated that elevator safety standards must be strictly followed to avoid negative incidents in the built industry.

According to a statement issued on Thursday, the resolve was made at the conclusion of a stakeholders’ meeting following an elevator disaster that killed a medical doctor, Dr Vwaere Diaso, at the General Hospital in Odan, Lagos Island.
Speaking at the equipment safety workshop for 2024 with the theme ‘Safety Compliance in the Elevator and Vertical Equipment Industry,’ which took place at the Moven Pick Hotels, Ikoyi, the Director General of the Lagos Safety Commission, Lanre Mojola, stated that the workshop was held to improve safety standards and foster compliance in the elevator and vertical transportation sectors.

“This workshop serves as a pivotal platform for industry professionals, regulatory bodies and stakeholders to come together, exchange knowledge, and collaborate towards a safer environment for all,” added Mojola.

Olugbenga Oyerinde, the Commissioner for Special Duties and Intergovernmental Relations, stated that the session was significant because “a strong occupational safety and health culture is not just a goal but a fundamental necessity in any workplace.

” It is our collaborative dedication to safety management that will prevent accidents, injuries, and fatalities while also ensuring our company’s future success and growth.
