Things You Need to Know about IBC/ASME Elevator Communication Code Updates

Safety codes for elevators and escalators have recently been updated and now include one-way video and two-way text communications requirements. Discussion will surround the risks, liabilities and implications property owners and managers face with elevators on property and under what circumstances the new code applies.

-Understand what has changed in the code with example scenarios that illustrate the purpose of this change
-Understand how IBC 2021 (California Building Standards) elevator code changes impact your property and your tenants.
-Understand the circumstances that will require you to meet these code changes and when you will need to do so
-Know how to properly test equipment for code compliance
-Know how to incorporate one-way video and two-way text communications into your building safety program.
