I just learned of the recent fatality of a young man working as an elevator helper. My thoughts and sorrow go out to all those who knew and cared about him. Our business is a dangerous one but the dangers can be countered by certain practices. It is my understanding that his life was lost during an elevator recable job. This struck home to me because my helper and I have a recable job scheduled for next week. I was hoping to get a dialog going where we could state one or two things we've learned through the years that make for a safe and smooth recable job. I was taught as a helper after hoisting the car to get your new runby to always leave one cable attached and to trip the governor during the cable job. Please do not post any comments in regards to the fatality. This post is about moving forward. Thanks
